Some of our ranks may only know Polly Bergen from her acting roles (my favorite is in Move Over, Darling). She worked in film and television steadily for five decades. The cult-status film she is most remembered for is Cape Fear.

But what a lot of people don't realize is that she was a very active singer and stage performer. She typically sang standards and "traditional pop" (discography from AllMusic)

From Wikipedia:

1955 Little Girl Blue
1957 Bergen Sings Morgan — Billboard 200 — 10
1957 The Party's Over — Billboard 200 — 20
1958 Polly and Her Pop
1959 My Heart Sings — Columbia #CS 8018 — orchestra conducted by Luther Henderson
1959 All Alone by the Telephone
1959 First Impressions — with Farley Granger and Hermione Gingold
1960 Four Seasons of Love
1961 Sings the Hit Songs from Do-Re-Mi and Annie Get Your Gun
1963 Act One, Sing Too
1996 My Heart Sings — re-release

Polly Bergen Dies at 84; Emmy-Winning Actress from the New York Times

Thanks for posting. I was not aware of her singing life. I did admire her acting. Always thought she was a great guest on talk shows, back in the day.

I have fond memories of Polly Bergen as an actress, singer, and celebrity guest.
