"No one can figure out your worth but you"
(March 29, 1918 – August 17, 1990
Pearl Mae Bailey... A bombshell in her own right. A talented singer, actress known for her many roles on Broadway and film during the 50s and 60s. She is probably best known for her roles in two of my favorite films of the eras, Carmen Jones and Porgy and Bess, but is also both a Tony and Emmy award recipient, an Apollo Theatre alum, and a graduate of Georgetown University receiving her B.A. in theology at age 67. She was truly a phenomenal woman and the perfect pick for my first pick for Vintage Vixen for the year!
