Monday Serenade: Janet Gaynor

Though Janet Gaynor is best known for her dramatic work in classics like Sunrise(1927) and A Star is Born (1937), she also did quite well in a series of early talkie musicals. She is adorable in this scene from Delicious (1931), singing a snuggly version of George Gershwin's Somebody Somewhere. Gaynor may not have been born to be a musical star, but she has all the charisma necessary to sell a song.
