Monica Lewis was thirty when she did this number for an indifferent MGM musical in 1952. There are three things you ought to know about her:
- For a couple of years she was married to record producer Bob Thiele, who at the time was running the Signature Records label.
- She was the voice of the animated Chiquita Banana, who warned you not to put bananas in the fridge. (I never have.)
- She did advertising for Burlington, a major hosiery manufacturer, and justifiably so.
And you may not need to know this: Monica Lewis, who died Friday at her home in Woodland Hills, California, was my oldest Twitter follower. She was 93.
