If she hadn't died 15 years ago, today would have been Ruby Keeler's 99th birthday. (And that, ladies and gentlemen, was about as close to a Queertyesque sentence as I have ever written, except the math is correct. But I digress...)

At the special request of my friend Steven, the FARBlog commemorates Mrs. Jolson's birthday with the following video clips. Enjoy!

Aside: whenever I finish my 1920s novel, Ruby will be making an appearance. I knew you'd want to know.
