Jeanette's Biography
Jeanette Baker

Jeanette Baker, accomplished star of stage, screen, radio, and televison is one of the most exciting personalities of today.

She was born in Denver, Colorado to Freddie Baker and Jane Catherine Martin. Freddie Baker was an actor who appeared in some of the earliest black Hollywood movies of the silent screen. . The legendary Josephine Baker was Jeanette's great aunt, Bixie Crawford was Jeanette's mother's first cousin, and an uncle Eugene Jackson, appeared as one of the original "Our Gang'' child actors during the 1920s.

At the age of six Jeanette made the first of many frequent trips out to Denver during the summer months, staying with favorite aunts. She made her acting debut as a 3 year old "extra" in George Marshall's "Star Spangled Rhythm.  Other  parts included Tarzan films with Johnny Weismuller and Lex Barker. Jeanette did "The Showboat.'' The Showboat was a summer talent contest held at City Park on a stage wagon.  During the first week's sing-off, Jeanette stepped up and sang Nellie Lutcher's 1947 Capitol hit, "He's a real gone guy'' and won first prize.


A man by the name of Martin Talley got Vernon and Jeanette involved in film work. This lead to Jeanette getting a minor role as a kid in the background on Michael Curtis's 1950 tobacco empire- building drama, "Bright Leaf," starring Gary Cooper. Cameo roles in other Hollywood movies lead up to a minor role in Allen Reisner's 1958 musical drama "St. Louis Blues'' starring Nat King Cole and Eartha Kitt. Jeanette remembered Nat King Cole from her childhood when he appeared at the Fairmount Club in St. Louis. Growing up, Jeanette did all the things young, talented middle class girls usually do: sang in the  High School Choir, was a member of the Herons of Jericho Methodist Youth Fellowship, served as band majorette, girl scout and camp-fire girl was a member of the YWCA and played both violin and xylophone in her high school band. She also had a talent for journalism and wrote columns for leading black tabloids. Her regular chat column was called "Teen Town USA." As a teen she was singing in night clubs from St. Louis to New York. She was under age and nobody knew it.
 
She is a gifted pianist and vocalist, an entertainer who lends a tantalizing approach to the rendition of a song, plus demonstrates her capabilities as an actress, songwriter and recording artist.
