At the age 12 in 1936, after moving to California, Myrtle Audrey Arnsberg won a teen singing contest. At age 27 in early 1952, initially using Audrey Brown as her vocal musical name, later, changed to Audrey Grant, made appearances on local Los Angeles television shows. A record producer renamed her Gogi Grant. She is best known for her 1956 hit “The Wayward Wind” and providing the vocals for the 1957 Warner Brothers Burbank Studios feature film “The Helen Morgan Story,” staring Ann Blyth, Paul Newman and Richard Carlson. Although Ann Blyth had done her own singing in her other movie musicals, her trained soprano voice was judged too operatic for the role of Helen Morgan, and pop singer Gogi Grant’s voice was dubbed in. Ironically, the real Helen Morgan’s light soprano voice was actually closer to Blyth’s in quality than it was to Grant’s. Ann Blyth revealed to writer-producer John Fricke that studio head Jack L. Warner had insisted on an intense, belting, Judy Garland-type sound for the film’s Morgan. This was Warner Bros. only 70mm feature film presented in black-and-white CinemaScope screen format. Warner Bros. released this as a double feature with the 1957 black-and-white 35mm academy ratio film “Johnny Trouble” starring Ethel Barrymore (her final film before her death in June 18, 1959 at the age of 75), Cecil Kellaway, Stuart Whitman and Carolyn Jones.
