Nanette Fabray was an American actress, singer and dancer, known for Playhouse 90, Westinghouse Playhouse, Burke's Law, Love American Style, The Love Boat, One Day at a Time, Hotel and Coach.
- Won Broadway's 1949 Tony Award as Best Actress (Musical) for "Love Life." Was also nominated in the same category in 1963 for "Mr. President."
- References stating that she appeared in the "Our Gang" comedy shorts as a child are highly exaggerated. Nanette was an extra once among dozens of other children in one episode.
- Received the Women's International Center (WIC) Living Legacy Award in 1993.
- Turned down the chance to be the original voice of "Wilma Flintstone" on _"The Flintstones" (1960)_ (qv) in order to accept 'Irving Berlin (I)' (qv)'s offer to star in his show "Mr. President". "Mr. President" was Berlin's last completed show and only real flop, opening to such negative reviews that even Berlin's family didn't dare tell him, leaving him to read about it in the next day's papers. _"The Flintstones" (1960)_ (qv) , of course, have become American pop-cultural icons.
- Once had surgery to enlarge - not reduce - the size of her nose.
- Seriously injured by a runaway elephant during the filming of _Harper Valley P.T.A. (1978)_ (qv).
- Honorary member of Delta Zeta sorority, Xi Omnicron chapter.
