Johnnie Lucille Collier, known professionally as Ann Miller, was a dancer, singer and actress. She is remembered for her work in Hollywood musical films of the 1940s and '50s. Some of her notable films were "Kiss Me Kate", "Easter Parade" and "On The Town".
''At MGM, I always played the second feminine lead. I was never the star in films. I was the brassy, good-hearted showgirl. I never really had my big moment on the screen. Broadway gave me the stardom that my soul kind of yearned for''.--: Ann Miller
