She co-hosted many beauty pageants, and was nominated for an Emmy for her coverage of the Miss Universe contest (1976). Playing herself, she sang "Green Eyes" in the film The Fabulous Dorseys (1947). Her recording of "Brazil" with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra (1942) is in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Pop vocalist MINDY CARSON (b. 1927) sang with the bands of Paul Whiteman and Guy Lombardo, and scored her first hit record, "Rumors Are Flying," with singing bandleader Harry Cool. She hosted a variety show on CBS radio, beginning in 1949. Bucking the trend toward rock and roll, she had some hit records in the mid-1950s: "My Foolish Heart," "Wake the Town and Tell the People," and "Since I Met You Baby." Carson appeared in some Broadway musicals, including The Body Beautiful (1958). MILLARD MITCHELL (1900-1953) was a supporting actor in films of the 1940s and early 1950s.
