HomeTown: San Diego, California, United States

Nanette Fabray was formerly labelled as “Baby Nanette” in reference to her early days as a singing and tap dancing child vaudevillian beginning at the age of 4. Ever from those early days, she has been a presence that is bright, amusing, and very energetic. Her mother, Lily Agnes (McGovern), was from Louisiana, and her father, Raoul Bernard Fabares, was a train conductor whose own father was from France. She was born in San Diego, California. Her parents were from Louisiana. In the Greater Los Angeles Area, she collaborated with some of the most famous performers of the day, most notably Ben Turpin. Additionally, she sang on the radio. It was generally believed that she had a part in the “Our Gang” (also known as “Little Rascal”) film shorts that were produced in the late 1920s; however, this was not the case. Later on, the young aspirant was awarded a scholarship to attend the Max Reinhardt School of the Theatre, where he subsequently participated in performances of “The Miracle,” “Six Characters in Search of an Author,” and “A Servant with Two Masters,” all of which took place in 1939. Nanette, on the other hand, would shine most on a musical comedy stage. After appearing in successful New York productions such as “Meet the People” (1940), “Let’s Face It” (1941), “By Jupiter” (1943), and “Bloomer Girl” (1945), she capped this period of great productivity by earning awards for her work on Broadway in “High Button Shoes” (1947 – Donaldson Award), and “Love Life” (1948 – Tony and Donaldson Awards). Strangely, Nanette was never able to establish herself as a reliable presence in the film industry. Her one claim to movie fame would be her vital participation in the blockbuster MGM musical The Band Wagon (1953), in which she memorably performed the songs “That’s Entertainment” and “Louisiana Hayride,” and joined Fred Astaire and Jack Buchanan in the standout “Triplets” number. Aside from her supporting roles in The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939), starring Bette Davis and Errol Flynn, and the melodrama A Child Is Born (19 In the 1950s, Nanette began investigating whether or not she might use television as a platform to express herself creatively. It was quite effective. She accomplished a remarkable achievement by winning two consecutive Emmy wins as Sid Caesar’s companion on the programme that would later be known as Caesar’s Hour (1954). This was after the departure of Imogene Coca, who seemed to be irreplaceable at the time. This led to Nanette eventually starring in her own sitcom, the short-lived Westinghouse Playhouse (1961), also known as “Yes, Yes, Nanette.” In this show, she played the role of a Broadway star who becomes a makeshift mom after marrying a widower (Wendell Corey) who already had two children. The show was cancelled after only one season. With roles in “Arms and the Girl” (1950) and “Make a Wish” (1951), Broadway musicals continued to have success (1951). After that, Nanette received another Tony nomination for her performance in the musical “Mr. President,” in which she played the role of a fictitious “First Lady” opposed to “President” Robert Ryan (1962). Other stage vehicles that were specifically crafted for her were “Plaza Suite,” “Wonderful Town,” “Never Too Late,” “Last of the Red Hot Lovers,” and “Cactus Flower,” amongst others. Nanette was able to make a smooth transition into a vibrant and charming supporting role on television. She served up a number of delightfully daffy moms, wisecracking friends, and intrusive relatives in guest appearances — sometimes alongside her own niece, actress Shelley Fabares, as was the case with their regular roles on One Day at a Time. She also served up a number of delightfully daffy moms, wisecracking friends, and intrusive relatives in guest appearances (1975). Nanette was also a popular game show personality during the ’60s and ’70s, appearing on The Hollywood Squares (Daytime) (1965), The New High Rollers (1974), Password (1961) and The Match Game (1962), among others.
