  1. Wow, that's quite the real name!
    So, was her daddy Joseph Blacker really a Russian Jew named Iosif Chernov, or were her parents just being eccentric?

  2. Isn't "Tina" (which I've read is hear real first name too) a shortened form of "Christina"? Wonder if mother wasn't Jewish.....

  3. Not always. Plenty of women named Tina.

  4. Like some of the other Jewish beauties you have profiled (Hedy Lamarr, Ellen Michaels) Tina has another, more artistic dimension to her: she recorded several LPs in the 1950s, torch songs with a jazz touch (Coleman Hawkins is featured on one)that are in some circles collectors' items.

  5. Speaking of old Jewish women, Laura Schlesinger ranted on the radio again, this time going all homophobic, and claimed being an Orthodox Jew. So, I guess, she is out of "Barely a Jew" category now and into the "Sadly, Oh So Sadly a Jew" one.
