Close Your Eyes~Recorded By Ruth Etting~1933

Rising to fame in the twenties and early thirties, Ruth Etting was renowned for her great beauty, her gorgeous voice and her tragic life. She starred on Broadway, made movies in Hollywood, married a mobster, had numerous hit-records, fell in love and was known as America’s Sweetheart of Song.
Ruth Etting made her first record in 1926 and her last in 1937. Completely lacking in the performer’s ego, she called her early recordings corny and kept none of her original 78′s. In 1955 her story was made into a movie, ultimately nominated for six Academy Awards and winning the Award for Best Story.


Thank you so much Walter. She was so beautiful and talented and it was such a shame she had such a sad life. I'm glad you enjoyed my post and I wish you a Happy New Year.

Thank you Ginny, for sharing this excellent post. The song is wonderful - as are the images you have chosen. I well remember a 1955 cinema screening of the film of Ruth Etting's tragic life - where James Cagney played the part of her paramour, with the nickname "The Gimp" and Doris Day took the role of Ruth.
