Mary Frances “Debbie” Reynolds Wiki Biography

American actress Mary Frances “Debbie” Reynolds was born on 1st April 1932, in El Paso, Texas, of English and Scottish-Irish descent. She was recognized as a consistent actress who received a number of nominations as well as won National Board of Review, American Comedy, Satellite and other prestigious awards. In addition, she was a talented singer and dancer. Reynolds was active in the entertainment industry from 1948 until her passing in 2016.

So just how rich was Debbie Reynolds? It has been estimated by authoritative sources that her net worth was as high as $85 million, the main source being her acting, though she added sums as a singer and dancer too.

Debbie Reynolds Net Worth $85 Million

Debbie’s early life was relatively poor – the family moved to Southern California, and she matriculated from Burbank High School, where she won the 1948 Miss Burbank beauty contest. She was subsequently signed by Warner Bros, and her career began on the big screen the same year, when she appeared in the film “June Bride”. She soon received a nomination for a Golden Globe Award as the New Star of the Year for her role in the film “Three Little Words”, and then starred in the legendary musical comedy “Singin’ in the Rain” in 1952 with Gene Kelly and directed by Stanley Donen; this musical had a modest start, but grew into one of the most recognized musicals worldwide. Further reputable nominations for Academy and Golden Globe Awards followed (all for Best Actress) for her roles in “Bundle of Joy” in 1956, “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” in 1964 and “The Debbie Reynolds Show” in 1970. She appeared in popular cinema as well as television productions, and was loved by audiences. What is more, she won the Lifetime Achievement Award in Comedy by American Comedy Awards twice, in 1996 and 1997. Her role in the feature film “Mother” in 1997 brought her a Satellite Award, and other well evaluated appearances were landed in “A Gift of Love: The Daniel Huffman Story”, “In & Out” and “Will & Grace” both in 2000. Latterly, she has received a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2014 to honour all the achievements of her life. All of these roles and award achievements considerably assisted the rise in Debbie’s net worth.

Debbie Reynolds was known as a great singer, too – she recorded a very popular duet entitled “Aba Daba Honeymoon” in 1950 alongside Carleton Carpenter, which became one of the most popular hits of that time. More, her song “Tammy” in 1957 received gold certification which also increased her net worth. Her album “Debbie” released in 1959 reflected her intellectual sense of music, and attention to the listener. Other successful songs recorded by Reynolds were “A Very Special Love” and “Am I That Easy to Forget” .

Talking about family life, Debbie Reynolds was married three times, all ending in divorce. From 1955 to 1959 she was married to actor and singer Eddie Fisher – their daughter Carrie Fisher was a famous actress, who died a day before her mother – and son Todd Fisher an actor, director and producer. From 1960 to 1973, her husband was Harry Karl. Her third marriage with Richard Hamlett lasted for 12 years, from 1984 to 1996. Debbie Reynolds passed away in December 2016 in Los Angeles, apparently wanting to be with her daughter.

1Strong sultry voice.
2Short stature.
3Most of her roles contain musical performances.
Bundle of Joy (1956)$150,000
1[on the announcement that daughter Carrie Fisher is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)] She's very excited about it . . . she's been on a diet ever since, because you know they have to be up to par, so she looks terrific, she's lost 40 pounds.
2[on Carrie Fisher] People used to call her "Debbie Reynolds' daughter," now they call me "Princess Leia's mother!"
3I only had radio growing up, so I loved going to the movies. I always had a thing for a fairy-tale ending.
4[on the death of Tony Curtis] Nobody had a better time than Tony. He loved the ladies. He loved art. He loved this business more than anything. He was a great looking guy, handsome. We were all very close friends when we were young, a long, long time ago. But he had a wonderful life. He had a full life. He was a great, marvellous actor.
5I do 20 minutes every time the refrigerator door opens and the light comes on.
6Daddy had got us rooms in a motel until he could find us a house. There were not a lot of places available for a young family on our budget. Daddy went around to dozens of places. Nobody wanted kids. Finally, he found one in the hills south of Glendale. As usual, the landlady asked if he had kids. "Yep,' he replied. "A boy and a girl". "Well, whatta you going to do about them?" she wanted to know, implying that she didn't allow children. "I'm gonna take 'em out and drown them in the Los Angeles River, and come back tomorrow". That was my father--ask a silly question and just wait. She must have had the same sense of humor--we moved in the next day.
7[asked what her favorite film is] I think one of my favorite films is Dark Victory (1939) with Bette Davis. Why? She was so wonderful in that film. And . . . maybe I just want a good cry once in a while without having to go through a divorce.
8I stopped making movies because I don't like taking my clothes off. Maybe it's realism but, in my opinion, it's utter filth.
9Singin' in the Rain (1952) and childbirth were the two hardest things I ever had to do in my life.
1Despite being three years apart, both Reynolds and Jane Powell celebrate their own birthdays, every April 1 of each year.

Her mother then gave her support knowing that there would be no "evil" going on in her movies. She mother knew her daughter had talent, but didn't understand why it was happening to her own daughter.

30Made her Broadway debut in 1973 in the revival of "Irene".

The production ultimately ran some 20 months. In 1976, she appeared in a one-woman, short-run (10 days - 14 performances) review named "Debbie!" at the Minskoff Theatre.
