Jane Powell was singing and dancing at an early age. She sang on the radio and performed in theater before her screen debut in 1944. Through the 1940s and 50s she had a successful career in movie musicals. However, in 1957, her career in films ended. Powell had outgrown her innocent, girl-next-door image. She has made brief returns to acting in front of the camera -- on television, in commercials, and in a work-out video. She has had a variety of roles on stage since the end of her movie career, including the musicals South Pacific, The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, My Fair Lady, Carousel,' and a one-woman show 'The Girl Next Door and How She Grew,' from which she took the title of her 1988 autobiography.
