Alice Faye (May 5, 1915 May 9, 1998) was an American actress and singer, called by The New York Times "one of the few movie stars to walk away from stardom at the peak of her career." She is remembered first for her stardom at 20th Century Fox and, later, as the radio comedy partner of her husband, bandleader and comedian Phil Harris. She is also often associated with the Academy Award winning standard "You'll Never Know", which she introduced in the 1943 musical film Hello, Frisco, Hello.
