Ann Margaret Tickets for Sale
Born in Sweden, she moved to Fox Lake, Illinois where she lived in a funeral parlor. At age 13, she won a dancing and singing competition at a local television station. She was the first runner up in 1957, when she appeared on "Ted Mack's Amateur Hour" on ABC. A year later she made her professional debut singing with Danny Ferguson's band for one summer month at the Muehlebach Hotel in Kansas City. In 1961 she was discovered and RCA signed with her a recording contract. In the same year she also appeared on the "Jack Benny Show" which led to a contract with 20th Century-Fox and her first movie "A Pocketful of Miracles". After the '60s, her career revived in 1971 with Carnal Knowledge and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. A terrible accident came in which she suffered a broken jaw and broken facial bones, plus she went comatose for four days, after falling 22 feet from a Tahoe stage. Within three months, and amazing everyone, she reopened in Vegas to standing ovations.

Her film career bounced back in dozens of movies including Tommy, with Tina Turner in 1975 which brought Ann a second Oscar nomination. She also appeared in some key TV movies, and Grumpy Old Men with Sophia Loren in 1993. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s she continued to headline in Vegas, and in July 1999 she got her fifth Emmy nomination, this one for the TV movie about Pamela Harriman. Her candid autobiography, My Story, was published in 1994, and became a New York Times bestseller. She was back on stage in 2001 and 2002, this time in the rousing musical Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Still working in movies, she had a supporting role in 2004, in the poorly received Jimmy Fallon comedy Taxi. Throughout the trials and tribulations during her career, Anne Margaret has become the definition of a well rounded star.
