  • Debbie Reynolds is an American actress, singer, and dancer. Initially signed at age sixteen by Warner Bros., Reynolds' career got off to a slow start. When her contract was not renewed, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer gave her a small but significant part in the film Three Little Words starring Fred Astaire and Red Skelton, then signed her to a seven-year contract. In her next film, Two Weeks with Love, she had a hit with the song "Aba Daba Honeymoon". However, it was her first leading role, in Singin' in the Rain with Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor, that set her on the path to fame. By the mid-1950s, she was a major star. Other notable successes include Tammy and the Bachelor, in which her rendering of the song "Tammy" reached number one on the music charts; a major role opposite Gregory Peck in the Cinerama episodic ensemble Western How the West Was Won; and The Unsinkable Molly Brown, a biographical film about the famously boisterous Titanic shipwreck survivor, for which she received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. She continues to perform successfully on stage, television and film to the present day.
