The day she died, one of the TV networks ran, in memoriam, a kinescope (?) of her singing Getting To Know You.

I don't know if it has survived, but I recall seeing it as a child. My mother woke me up, in fact, so that I wouldn't
miss this last view of her, as it came on after bedtime.

In those days, reruns of anything major were scarce, so it was often a case of This Time Only.
