In the Corner with Dan Hughes


May 21, 2014

Fannie Brice had two careers.  She was the actress and singer as portrayed by Barbra Streisand in the movies Funny Girl and Funny Lady, and she was an exasperating six-year-old girl on the Baby Snooks Show. 

Baby Snooks first appeared on the radio in 1936, when Brice was 46 years old.  The last episode of her show aired the day she died suddenly of a brain aneurism in 1951.

In this episode from November 21, 1940, Jack Benny is the guest star.
