Actress Arlene Francis, a panelist on What's My Line for its 25-year run, died Thursday at Kaiser Hospital in San Francisco of natural causes. Though the theater was the actress' first love, she gained her fame and fortune through television. In the 1950s, Francis hosted the NBC daytime magazine program Home, was the mistress of ceremony for ABC's Talent Patrol and then a panelist on CBS' What's My Line. She also starred in several feature films, including Murders in the Rue Morgue, Stage Door Canteen, All My Sons, One, Two, Three and The Thrill of it All. She made her Broadway debut in 1936 in George Abbott's All That Glitters and later starred with Orson Welles in Danton's Death. Francis also hosted The Arlene Francis Show, a daily interview program on WOR radio in New York that aired for 23 years. Born on Oct. 12, 1908, she was married to movie executive Neil Agnew in 1935 for 10 years then to actor Martin Gable, who died in 1986.
Mariah Carey has no problem keeping busy. The singer is working on All that Glitters, the name of her film debut and accompanying soundtrack. "I've been dying to do [a movie] for 3 ½ years, but fools wouldn't let me," she told sonicnet.com. The film, scheduled to open Aug. 31, stars Carey as a struggling singer who is trying to get discovered in the early '80s. Carey's soundtrack will hit stores Aug. 21. She is now filming the video for her upcoming single, "Loverboy."
Mariah Carey, who has released more No. 1 singles than any other solo pop female artist, has fluttered away from Columbia Records and landed a deal with Virgin Records, according to news reports.
Carey, whose most recent albums include Butterfly and Rainbow, released a joint statement Monday with Columbia Records to announce her departure from the label.
"Mariah Carey is one of the most talented artists in the world. We have shared many commercial and creative successes, and we wish her only the best as her career continues to grow and evolve," Sony Music, Columbia Records' parent company, said in the statement, according to Reuters.
Carey, 31, has signed a deal with Virgin Records worth $20 million per album, according to The New York Daily News. Her first record for her new label will be the soundtrack for All that Glitters, her upcoming summer release from 20th Century Fox.
Sony Music Chairman Tommy Mottola signed Carey to Columbia Records. They later got married and then divorced. Carey's self-titled multiplatinum debut album, released in 1990, earned her a Grammy for best new artist.
According to Columbia Records, Carey was one of the label's best-selling artists, having sold more than 140 million singles and albums worldwide. She scored 12 U.S. No. 1 singles, including "One Sweet Day" with Boyz II Men.
