According to the Associated Press, actress Kathryn Grayson died in her sleep Wednesday at her home in Los Angeles. Born in 1922, Grayson was placed under contract at MGM while still a teenager, and starred in some of the best-known movie musicals of the ’40s and ’50s: 1945’s Anchors Aweigh (alongside Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly), 1951’s Show Boat, and 1953’s Kiss Me Kate. She’d go on to guest star on programs like The Bob Hope Show, Playhouse 90, and Baretta, and made her final screen appearance in a 1989 episode of Murder She Wrote. Grayson (neé Zelma Kathryn Hedrick) was 88.
