Be prepared for GSN to spring another tribute and most likely another preempted WML? program in the next week or two. I wish they could just use the second 1/2 hour for such tributes or reschedule the preempted program for an upcoming week, but that doesn't seem to be their way.
Miss Hutton appeared twice on WML?:
WML 7-27 EPISODE #300 - 03/04/56 Betty Hutton
WML 9-40 EPISODE #417 - 06/01/58 Betty Hutton
The NY Times has a very interesting overview of her life in the obit for Miss Hutton:
Betty Hutton, Film Star of '40s and '50s, Dies at 86
Also, Turner C.lassic Movies will celebrate Hutton on Thursday by presenting three of her films:
12:30 p.m. "The Stork Club"
2:15 p.m. "The Perils of Pauline"
4 p.m. "The Greatest Show on Earth"
Best of all, TCM will repeat its priceless interview with Hutton and host Robert Osborne at 7 p.m. Hutton sat for the chat on "Private Screenings" seven years ago. TCM billed the TV appearance as Hutton's first in 20 years. (All times are EDT)
