American actress/singer Dorothy Lamour became vocalist for the Herbie Kay Band in 1931. That was just prior to her film debut. Lamour built up a solid reputation as a radio singer, notably on the 1934 series Dreamer of Songs. Paramount Pictures signed Lamour to a contract. Her most famous movies were:
1936 in Jungle Princess (1936), The Hurricane (1937), in St. Louis Blues (1939), she co-starred in Road to Singapore (1940), the first of six Road pictures teaming Lamour with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.
Very popular with the troops during World War II, Lamour gave selflessly of her time and talent in camp tours, USO shows and bond drives throughout the early 1940s. Between 1952 and 1962, during which time she developed a popular nightclub act, she returned to films for Hope and Crosby's Road to Hong Kong (1962), and in the 1960s and 1970s, Lamour was one of several veteran actresses to star in Hello Dolly, and spent much of her time in regional productions of such straight plays as Barefoot in the Park.
