Aug 18, 2014 · If Lucille Bremer was Arthur Freed's mistress, why didn't she get better roles? She was very beautiful, and a splendid dancer. And she was also, as Ann Miller put it, "Arthur Freed's pussy."
Arthur Freed discovered Lucille when she was working in a nightclub doing a specialty dance act, and decided to cast her as Rose Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis, and began building up her career which never really took off despite being put in 3 big musical productions at MGM.
- February 21, 1917 in Amsterdam, New York, USA
Bremer's first attempt at a career in films was unsuccessful. She said of her screen test with Warner Bros.: "It was so bad I realized why nothing had happened." She returned to dancing, performing at the Copacabana nightclub in New York City and the Club Versailles, where she was spotted by Arthur Freed, a producer at Metro Goldwyn Mayer.
