In an interview with Oprah, Nanette mentioned that when she was a youngster, she was known for being the “scrawny kid in class”. Ironically, her father, a successful real estate broker, didn’t think that being slim was a bad thing as he saw her bright future as an actress and singer. Later in life, Nanette became a popular stand up comic and became one of the first female comics to make it into the United States’ National Lampoon’s Animal House. Ironically enough, the very same animal house helped to launch her career into stardom, and she was able to sign a deal with MGM to star in their own series titled: The Mouseketeers. Over the years, Nanette has established a reputation for being one of the funniest actresses in Hollywood, and her appearances on numerous sitcoms have also added to her vivacious persona.
As was revealed in an interview with Parade Magazine, Nanette was actually the model for the train conductor in one of her many comedy roles, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. While the role ultimately went to Marlon Brando, Nanette’s appearance in the film elevated her to stardom status. When the film hit the theaters, it became number one at the box office, and quickly after went on to become the highest grossing movie of all time. It was also at this point in her career that Nanette also received the first of four Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role and went on to receive additional acting awards for The Goodbye Girl, We Are Marshall, and There’s Something About Mary.
It was around this time that she decided to concentrate on playing vaudeville acts full-time, after appearing in a string of comedy flicks in the fifties and sixties. The success of her Nanette Fabray character allowed her to hone her acting skills, and she was also able to strike it big in the John Wayne Westerns that were so popular at the time. In the role of the famed gunslinger, he managed to add an element of magic to the character that is generally missing from typical Western movies. The Gunslinger was a man who used his powers of perception to be a hero to his friends, but also to save the world as well. Fabray’s ability to draw in crowds made her an instant hit in the vaudeville industry.
One of her other notable film roles was as the title role in A Christmas Story, which she also reprises today. During the decades that followed, she would also appear in such memorable films as Cocoon, Come Here, I’m Going to Wash That Man… and Chicago. She was nominated for a number of awards, including the Satellite Award for Outstanding Actress in a Leading Role, and became the first woman to win the Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Motion Picture at the Oscars. Her honors list also included an Honorary Academy Award for her work in Cocoon, and she is just the second female to receive the designation. Nanette Fabray is an actor to watch for anyone who loves comedy, and who appreciates the sort of womanliness that brought so much attention to women during the decades of the 1950s.
