You're My Dish
by Jimmie Grier And His Orchestra, feat. vocalist Julie Gibson
CATCH-UP: Julie Gibson (1913 to 2019) was an American actress and singer. Julie Gibson was born Gladys Camille Sorey in Lewiston, Idaho, USA, on September 9th 1913. She graduated from Lewiston High School, around which time she and her older sister Rea had started taking part in local dramatics and music communities, with Julie singing and her sister playing harmony ukulele (they eventually began a stage act known as 'Camille Sorey and Her Girlfriends' which once played the Granada Theatre). After a performance at the Victor Club in Portland, she changed her name to 'Julie Gibson' and joined Bob Young's orchestra as a soloist in 1935. Then, after performing for radio station 'KSL' in Salt Lake City and winning a talent quest, she joined 'Eddie Duchin's Orchestra' during syndicated broadcasts from Los Angeles. Gibson gained further notice while singing with 'Jimmie Grier And His Orchestra' in 1937 (they're featured together here), and in the same year joined the cast of Joe Penner's popular radio programme. Her first small film appearances came in the movies "Nice Girl?" and "The Feminine Touch" (both 1941), with her first featured role following in 1944 during the film "Lucky Cowboy". This was followed by a series of other starring roles in such films as "Chick Carter, Detective", "Bowery Buckaroos" and "Are You with It?". As well as being a singer and actress who enjoyed most of her success in movies during the 1940s, she also became well-known for her work opposite 'The Three Stooges'. In the 1950s however, Gibson's career was relegated mostly to smaller supporting roles in films and on TV, and in the 1960s she became a dialogue supervisor for 24 episodes of the television sitcom "Family Affair". She also worked as an accent coach to help actors in films speak correctly in character. During her voiceover career, she notably dubbed vocals for the stars Betty Hutton and Diana Lynn, and also travelled to Europe to supply English voices for foreign stars in a number of Italian and French films. Married and divorced three times, she nevertheless had no children. Julie Gibson died in her sleep at her home in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, on October 2nd 2019, aged 106.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace ✚", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
