From there her career soared. She landed a role in Charlie Chaplin's film Monsieur Verdoux. By the 1950s she hosted her own highly rated television show, reaching millions with her clowning."--BOOK JACKET. "Behind the huge smile and raucous laugh, though, there was a darker side to Martha Raye. She found solace from her insecurities and a frenzied schedule in the use of drugs and alcohol. Her seven marriages, the last to a man 33 years her junior whom she had known less than two weeks, fueled headlines and gossip columns. Particularly painful was her turbulent relationship with her only daughter, Melodye."--BOOK JACKET+-+3566768635661ocn033664566book19950.24Fortin, NoonieMemories of Maggie : Martha Raye--a legend spanning three warsBiography+-+6367475336321ocn038550889book19980.25Fortin, NooniePotpourri of war : labors of love rememberedMiscellaneaAnecdotes+-+197747533661ocn043737182visu19990.10Martha Raye in love and warBiographyA biography of Martha Raye, from her vaudeville beginnings and movie success to her strong committment to the USO for which she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom41ocn043973488score19380.96Carmichael, HoagyCollege swingBiographyPortraitsMusicPictorial works31ocn024650636score19360.73Robin, LeoLa bombaPortraitsPictorial works21ocn638853474book19381.00Martha Raye in Filling a large cavityComic books, strips, etc21ocn320895334score19440.59Monaco, James VTime alone will tell : from the 20th Century-Fox picture, Pin up girlPortraitsMusic22ocn070254528visu20050.10A.
