Movie Trivia 2/15

Reminder:  Email your answers to contests @ bettyegriffin.com (no spaces) with "Movie Trivia 2/15" in the subject line.  Include your full name with your entry.

Apologies for the skips in this clip, but it's the only one I could find.

At 00:40 and 1:02 in this clip the camera shifts to two women.  For 10 points, name the woman behind the bar, seen here in one of her first movie roles.  For another 10 points, name the woman who is sitting at the bar (who is best known as a dancer, but made a few movies).

If you're curious about the woman singing, her name was Mae Barnes (1907-1997), and she was very popular in the 1950s, often appearing at the Bon Soir, a Greenwich Village cabaret.  She did make some recordings, but unfortunately this song, All Men Are Evil, is not one of them.  I think she had a great sound...
