She died of cancer and heart disease in Los Angeles, California and was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Westwood, California. That marriage, too, failed. She was also the star of Our Miss Brooks, a sitcom which aired on both radio (1948 - 1952) and television (1952 - 1956). She later married Billy Rose. She played in many movies, including Grease, in which she played the principal, and the secretary in Anatomy of a Murder. After Arnstein served his sentence at Fort Leavenworth (he previously did time at Sing Sing, where Fanny visited him every week), a heartsick Brice divorced him. Eve Arden (April 30, 1908–November 12, 1990) was an American actress born as Eunice Quedens in Mill Valley, California. Two children were born of the marriage, but only their daughter is depicted.
When he finally surrendered, he did not plead guilty, as, again, he did in the movie, but fought the charges for 4 years. He was actually part of a gang that stole $5 million of Wall Street securities. Instead of turning himself in, as he did in the movie, Nicky went into hiding. The film also suggested he sold phony bonds. The film suggested that Arnstein turned to crime because he didn't want to live off of Fanny; the real Nicky shamelessly sponged off her.
Funny Girl is a prime example of how films usually take liberties with the lives of historical figures and/or events. Brice's second husband was gambler Julius "Nicky" Arnstein. Barbra Streisand made two movies that were (very) loosely based upon the life of Fanny Brice: Funny Girl and Funny Lady. A Hollywood biopic of Brice appeared in 1939 entitled Rose of Washington Square.
Fanny Brice died in Hollywood, California. She was a master at both verbal and physical comedy. Best known as a comic, Brice was a multitalented performer, able to sing songs humorously or with great serious emotion. During the late 1930s, she had her own radio show which featured her as a bratty toddler known as "Baby Snooks.".
In the 1921 "Follies" she was featured singing the tango "My Man", which became a big hit and was much associated with Brice in the United States for many years. She made phonograph records of it and appeared singing it in sound film. She is best known for her association with Florenz Ziegfeld, and headlined his Ziegfield Follies starting in 1910 and continuing into the 1930s. In 1908, she dropped out of school to work in a burlesque review. "Fanny Brice" was the stage name of Fania Borach, born in New York City, the third child of relatively well-off saloon owners of Hungarian Jewish decent.
Fanny Brice (October 29, 1891 - May 29, 1951) was a United States comedian, singer, and entertainer.
