In this business that we call "show," there are certain words and phrases that are used with a great deal of frequency.  For example: "sweetheart"as in a "sweetheart of a deal,"you'll love it," " above the titles and below the lines,"  "Have I ever lied to you before?"  And of course, "Trust me," and then there's the declension of the verb "to owe"as in "he owes her one,"  "you owe me one," "we owe them one," "they owe us one,"  "I don't owe you anything."  But of course, that last one you can't use until after you've paid your dues.  But there are also words we use with less frequency, words like "courage", "guts",  "perseverance",  "talent",  "comeback".  We have with us tonight someone who is all those very rare words.  Ladies and gentlemen:
Connie Francis......
