Anita overcomes her vocal hurdle, as well as many others -- including poverty, heroin addiction and jail time for a drug arrest -- to become one of the most prolific and respected jazz vocalists of the 20th century. Initial release: 30 April 2007Anita O'Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer featuring Anita O'Day and Buddy Bregman is streaming with subscription on Hoopla, free on VUDU, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and 1 other. It's a documentary movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 8.0 (238 votes).
