Check out www.imdb.com for a great list of Ella’s vocals used in films and for detailed information about the movies in which Miss Fitzgerald performed.
They also have listings for TV and even commercials… Did you know that Ella did a GREAT Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial? It’s true, but what’s really funny was that she was on a very restricted diet and wasn’t allowed to eat the chicken!
