Nan Wynn was an American big-band singer and actress. Born on May 8, 1915 in Wheeling, West Virginia, Wynn recorded with many well-known orchestras, including those of Teddy Wilson, Freddie Rich, Raymond Scott and Hal Kemp. Wynn appeared in many films, usually as a nightclub singer, with a starring role opposite William Lundigan in the 1941 film a “Shot in the Dark” (1941), as well as appearances in other such films as “Million Dollar Baby” (1941), “Princess O’Rourke” (1943) and “Intrigue” (1947). Wynn is perhaps best-known for dubbing Rita Hayworth’s singing voice in several of her films, including “My Gal Sal” (1942) and “You Were Never Lovelier” (1942). She appeared in Billy Rose’s 1944 Broadway musical production the “Seven Lively Arts”. Wynn married producer, writer, and director Cy Howard, but the marriage ended in divorce.
