Polly Bergen

In a six-decade-plus career (she started out as a radio performer at age 14), there are very few facets of entertainment that lovely singer/actress Polly Bergen has not conquered or, at the very least, touched upon. A nightclub and Columbia recording artist of the 50s and 60s, she is just as well known for her film and Emmy-winning dramatic performances as she is for her wry comedic gifts. In the leaner times, she has maintained quite well with her various businesses. Truly one for the ages, Polly has, at age 70+, nabbed a Tony nomination for her gutsy “I'm Still Here” entertainer Carlotta in Stephen Sondheim's “Follies”, and is still dishing out the barbs as she recently demonstrated as Felicity Huffman's earthy mom on “Desperate Housewives” (2004).
