Gertrude Lawrence (1902-1952) was known as "The Toast of Two Continents" in an era when the term had an almost literal meaning, and the highs and lows of her extremely public private life were almost as dramatic as her career.

It tries to suggest a documentary that is being made while she is still alive (so she doesn't die during the run of The King and I and make for a sad ending -- though at least it would have had an ending, because as it is, it doesn't, not really).
