Kay Thompson – The most famous person you’ve never heard of.
Actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, vocal arranger, composer, pianist, Sinatra’s voice coach, cabaret performer, Liza Minelli’s god mother, radio star, Judy Garland’s best friend, fashion icon, and author of the famous series of children’s books, “Eloise”.
But none of us know her name …
In 2008, Liza Minelli for New York magazine said: “Kay conquered everything, then moved on. She was the greatest person ever at MGM, then she got tired of that. She did a nightclub act that was the greatest nightclub act that had ever been seen, then she got tired of that. Then she wrote the best children’s book in the world. She lived her life!”
New York times said of her “Miss Thompson is of the type which not only would launch a thousand ships but first would design and build them.” NYT 1957
