Florence Foster Jenkins (from the Pitbull CD thread)

If ever there was a testament to high self-esteem, she was it. She really does deserve a movie tribute.

I love her. She was like a poster child for delusion, but hey -- she was a gift that kept on giving. It's a tragedy that not more of her performances were recorded.

I once put her performance of the Queen of the Nights revenge Aria on my partner's phone as the ring tone for whenever I called. You wouldn't believe how fast he was on the pickup!

During her performances at Carnegie Hall people hid their laughter by using handkerchiefs in front of their mouths to make it look like they were coughing.

She was very wealthy. And delusional.

On Sundays at 3:00PM on Time Warner NYC 56 you can see the current version. Her name is Florence Morrison. CDs are available.

She would ask taxi drivers if they were "music lovers." An affirmative would guarantee free tickets to her next performance.

Judy Kaye was brilliant as Florence in the Broadway play Souvenir.
