Helen Grayco

  1. Ann Blyth, The Helen Morgan Story, 1956.    For six months, Warner Bros scanned some 32 possible Morgans, including: Dani Crayne, Susan Hayward, Jennifer Jones plus singers Grayco (Mrs Spike Jones), Doris Day, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee, Jaye P. Morgan, Patti Page, Keely Smith. And even fashion model Nancy Berg. Morgan’s friends and fans were furious when director Michael Curtis chose Blyth, with Cogi Grant dubbing the songs as neither looked or sounded like Morgan. Curtiz said Blyth was the best actress for the rôle and Grant’s voice was better than Morgan’s “kind of high-pitched, low-voiced torch singing… it’s outmoded.” So, tell another story! Berg’s life, for example, was way heavier.
