Personal Quote:

[Interview, 1982] My father died when I was very young, and there was just my mother, my sister, and me. Were we a needy family? I always like what General Eisenhower said: 'We were poor and didn't know it.'

Trivia:

During the 1930s, she began her professional singing career under the name, "Dolores Reade", on the advice of her agent. In 1933, after appearing at the Vogue Club, a Manhattan nightclub, Reade was introduced to Bob Hope, who had been advised to check her out by George Murphy. See more »
