I'm a huge Pearl Bailey fan... she was an amazing blues/gospel/jazz singer known for her "laziness" (part of her act and show biz personality). She was a short little lady, but packed a whole lotta dynamite into everything. She headlined a run of "Hello Dolly!" on Broadway in the 60s, as the very first black Dolly. Jean Stapleton has done a ton of stuff, but she is known best of all for her portrayal of Edith Bunker on "All in the Family". Her trademark is her squeaky, squawky voice: "Aaaaaarchie!"
