Betty Hutton, the bubbly actress and singer who starred in countless musicals in the 1940s and early '50s, has died in Palm Springs at age 86. A friend confirmed to the Associated Press only that she had died, saying that the actual time and cause of death would be provided at a later time by the executor of her estate. She was best known for a series of films in which she played real-life personalities -- including Annie Get Your Gun, about Annie Oakley; Somebody Loves Me, about Blossom Seeley; Incendiary Blonde, about Texas Guinan, and Perils of Pauline, about Pearl White.
