Video – Sophie Tucker Tribute Film
YouTube – Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame
The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to celebrated singer and actress, and long-time Hartford resident, Sophie Tucker. “The Last of the Red-Hot Mamas,” Tucker’s five-decade career spanned the vaudeville stage to Royal Command Performances—for three generations of British monarchs. Tucker shared top billing with many of the 20th century’s most famous stars, including W. C. Fields, Will Rogers, Eddie Cantor, Jack Benny, and Fanny Brice.
