I know everyone has heard this story before, but it sort of describes Gee Gee, she was one of a kind.
When on the subject of Gee Gee, I always think of the time a performer walked into the wardrobe room where Jimmy Douglas was sewing on a costume. He said, "my wife is going to do a Husky Dog Act like Gee Gee's", Jimmy didn't look up, & never missed a stitch, replying, "young man, your wife may do a husky act, but NOBODY, will ever do one like Gee Gee"!
