My name is Amanda Thompson. My mother was Betty Brewer. Her information has been mixed up with a younger Betty Brewer. My mom sang with Tommy Dorsey and Gordon Jenkins and was on many TV shows with Don Ameche, Jackie Gleason, etc. I have a scrapbook filled with photos and articles. Please contact me to correct the mix up with the other Betty Brewer. Thanks, Amanda

Thanks.  Please can you be more precise over which credits / information belong to which person?

Is the head shot on http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0108116/ your mother? It seems to match all the photos in the photo gallery and this grab from Cover Girl (1944):



If this is a simple split between the person with movie credits from 1940-1944 vs. the person with TV credits from 1950 onwards then (a) do you have photos and some representative scrapbook information which you can post here for your mother and (b) to whom does the birthday / birth name information belong?

Hi Col, Neither of the above was my mother. My mom was born on April 1, 1922, in Hot Springs, Ar. She was in only one movie that I know of and that was because she was singing with Tommy Dorsey Band at the time. I have tons of photos. She also had a hit record with Gordon Jenkins, 
Don't Cry Joe. On your site she is in Don Ameche's Musical Playhouse. I will look on your site and write down what is hers and what is not. Thank goodness my Aunt, the one that kept all these photos is still alive and she remembers everything her big sister did! Attached are photos.

My mom was also the one in Las Vegas Nights with Tommy and on the Bill Cullen show. Not the other Betty Brewer.

Hi Amanda,

Thanks for letting us know. I've created a new page for your mother http://www.imdb.com/name/nm8761958/ and moved the credits for Las Vegas Nights and the Bill Cullen Show and added her birth date/place. Would you mind taking a look at the other credits and if there are any more which relate to your mother let me know and I can move them for you?

Thanks very much.

Amanda, Is your mom Betty Brewer still alive? Is she the Betty Brewer that was married to Lieutenant Robert Hester?
