One of my favorite Dorothy pics. Did you know that she and Nat “King” Cole pitched ideas to networks about doing a television sitcom together? They had a few angles, including one where they played a “small-time pair of married performers" who went through all kinds of ('50s sitcom-ish) scenarios as they climbed the ladder to success. They were turned down all over town. Quelle surprise!
