Warner Bros. produced the movie, "MOLLY: AN AMERICAN GIRL ON THE HOME FRONT," as part of the American Girl series. Molly is a young aspiring dancer in a small midwestern town, during World War II, who passionately wants to win the starring role of "Miss Victory" in her grade school's Christmas gala tap dance review. (Cast includes Molly Ringwald.) For the DVD, they searched for an entertainer from those years, and were lucky to find Mitzi, Raymond Scott's 3rd wife: "A compelling documentary featuring Mitzi Scott, an 88-year-old former USO dancer and hostess, relaying her personal history of dancing at home and with soldiers on leave, making something personal and dear to her — dance — into the ultimate patriotic act."
The 2nd part of this Vimeo video is an excerpt from the full-length documentary film, "DECONSTRUCTING DAD," with Mitzi remembering her first date with — and marriage to — Raymond Scott. [DVD info: ScottDoc.com]
Both of these clips were shown at the reception following Mitzi's memorial service on June 22, 2012.
