Jeanette appeared on early TV, most frequently as a singing guest star. On “Playhouse 90” (3/28/57) she played Charley’s real aunt to Art Carney’s impersonation in “Charley’s Aunt.” Her dazzling tour-de-force appearance on “The Voice of Firestone” has recently been released on video. Her husband, Gene Raymond, wrote and produced a sprightly sitcom pilot for her, “Prima Donna,” which failed to find a network slot.

On 11/12/52, Jeanette was the subject of Ralph Edwards’ “This Is Your Life.” Nelson appeared as a voice from her past, singing the song he sang at her wedding to Gene Raymond.
