    This lady's full name was Hildegarde Sell.

    She lived until the grand age of 99. More information about her is contained in her attached obituary.......

    "Titles read: "Here comes Hildegarde (and a piano) from 'Trouble In Paradise'." (? - may be incorrect - timecode obscures titles.)" - the title actually reads as follows.....

    Here comes Hildegarde (and a piano) from Cafe de Paris.

    Another nice performance from Hildegarde here - see clip 1622.25 for an even better one!
