Singer-Actress Lina Romay Dies at 91

Singer-actress Lina Romay has passed away at the age of 91.

Romay will always have a special place in my heart, as her first movie was my favorite film made by both Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth, YOU WERE NEVER LOVELIER (1942). Romay sang "Chiu, Chiu" and "Wedding in the Spring" in the film with Xavier Cugat's band.

She appeared in several more films, including a supporting role as Geraldine Brooks' best friend in EMBRACEABLE YOU (1948), which I reviewed last September.

There's more information at the Lina Romay website.
