Debbie Reynolds was one of Hollywood's most recognizable actresses with a career that began in 1948. Although she was born Mary Frances Reynolds, she shortened it to Debbie to make it easier to say. She was nominated for several Golden Globes and an Academy Award.
Debbie Reynolds was born in El Paso, Texas, in 1932. By 1952, she was starring alongside Gene Kelly in Singin' in the Rain. She would also go on to star in many other films, like The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Hit the Deck, Divorce American Style, The Tender Trap, Bundle of Joy, Goodbye Charlie, The Singing Nun, Charlotte's Web, and dozens of others. She also had her own sitcom, The Debbie Reynolds Show. Debbie Reynolds wasn't the only actress in her family either. Her daughter Carrie Fisher also went on to be a star.
In 2014, Debbie Reynolds received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild honoring her career, which also includes her love for preserving Hollywood memorabilia. Her collection began decades ago and turned into one of the largest memorabilia and prop collections of Hollywood items ever built. She bought it to eventually build a museum, but after being declined several times, she decided it would be best to sell it off instead of letting it stay locked up.
