Catherine Annette Hanshaw, born 1901, was one of the first great jazz singers although she never thought much of her own singing. In 1935, she was chosen America's most popular female singer in a national poll of radio listeners promoted by Radioland Magazine. Annette never appeared in movies although she had numerous offers, and her only appearance on film is the 1:43 clip of her singing We Just Couldn't Say Goodbye from Captain Henry's Maxwell House Showboat in 1933. She appeared on numerous radio shows for Maxwell House, Van Heusen shirts, Camel cigarettes, etc but left in 1936 at the height of her career to live with her husband, Pathe exec Wally Rose.
Body and Soul was first made famous by torch singer Libby Holman who sang it in the Broadway show, Three's a Crowd in 1930
