Summary
The life and career of stage and screen performer Sophie Tucker (1884-1966) is examined in this tribute, taped for a cable access station in Florida. Tucker's nephew Ron Green discusses his aunt with interviewer Harold Sonin, describing her childhood in Russia, early years in the United States, and her performing career in burlesque, vaudeville, and films. Her first marriage is mentioned, but the emphasis is on her show business career.
