Stage Name

Birth Name

Lee Dixon

? Lee Dixon ?
   

Singer, Songwriter, Actor and Dancer. Performed on the Vaudeville stage, Broadway and a few films. His most notable dance scene was when he danced on a huge Typewriter with Ruby Keeler in the movie "Ready, Willing and Able," ( Here's the clip.)

   He was tall for a notable dancer but was a multi talented performer, and an excellent Tap dancer but also became a heavy drinker as he approached middle age. His alcoholism lead to his not being hired in any productions, except Oklahoma, which he did his own choreography and did it exceptionally well.
