Person Female Born 10/6/1922 Died 22/6/1969
born Frances Ethel Gumm in Minnesota, USA. She came to London in 1968 to appear at the Talk of the Town (now the Hippodrome Casino) and married her fifth husband at Chelsea registry office on 15 March 1969. She was troubled, personally and financially and her health was not good, as is obvious in the recordings of her performance at the Talk of the Town. Her final performance was at the Falkoner Centre, Frederiksberg, Denmark, on March 25 (no recording, we believe). Died at her rented home at 4 Cadogan Lane. Another Nickel in the Machine covers this sad period.
