Wing Man-ic

The queen of bit parts, Toby Wing
On screen she made heartstrings go "zing"
From prop man to mogul
They'd stop and they'd ogle
This "teenager" started to sing.

Dick Powell and uncredited chorus girl Toby Wing, in the Busby Berkeley production number Young and Healthy from 42nd Street (Lloyd Bacon; 1933). The 27 year old Powell plays the show's "juvenile" lead, Billy Lawler.
