Fanny Brice (1891-1951) was a truly popular entertainer, with a career that spanned four decades. She was a hit in almost every branch of American show business burlesque and vaudeville, drama and musical revues (including nine Ziegfeld Follies), film and radio. She is most often remembered for her characterization of the radio brat Baby Snooks, yet Snooks was not Brice's best role. A brilliant comic, Fanny Brice had a significant impact on a field that had been predominantly male, proving that the term "funny woman" was not an oxymoron.
