Jane Powell (Suzanne Burce) (b. 1929) was an actress, singer who began her career in 1943 at the age of 13. An appearance was arranged for the young singer on the radio network broadcast of Hollywood Showcase, and about a week later her screen test for MGM was pronounced a success -- Suzanne Burce became Jane Powell. She was under contract with Metro-Goldwyn Mayer to 1957. Motion pictures in which she performed include "Holiday in Mexico," "Royal Wedding," "Athena," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." Some of her nightclub engagements were in Las Vegas and New York City. In 1959, she was the star of the television version of "Meet Me In St. Louis."
