Debbie Reynolds, actress, costume archivist...and horn player

Debbie Reynolds, legendary actress, died on December 28 at the age of 84 following a stroke and the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher. There has been so much coverage of her death the day after Carrie’s death that if you didn’t know about it, you have probably been on a desert island.

You probably can also picture Ms. Reynold’s in some of her most famous roles: The Unsinkable Molly BrownTammy and the Bachelor, Divorce American Style, and especially Singin’ in the Rain.

She was the ultimate girl next door—

Singer, dancer, actress—

Famous mother—

You may even know that she was a Hollywood costume archivist

But did you know that Debbie Reynolds also played the French horn?

You can even catch her playing the horn at about a minute in on this movie cut: 

And, besides a vintage raincoat or two, I have the horn in common with Debbie. 😊
