A Real Star — Totie Fields, Illness Didn't Get in Her Way

By HERBERT LUFT
(Copyright 1978, JTA, Inc.)

Totie Fields, who died un-
expectedly Aug. 2 in Las
Vegas on the day before her
opening at the Sahara Hotel
where she was under an exc-
lusive contract for a number
of years, earlier this year
joined Frank Sinatra on a
junket to Israel. In spite of
her failing health after two
heart attacks, Totie, whose
real name was Sophie
Feldman, remained cheer-
ful, taking her life and her
talent as a gift from God.
Due to her constantly de-
teriorating health, heart
trouble, diabetes and
cancer, she has been laugh-
ing under tears for the past
two years; yet, she re-
mained gay and hopeful to
the end, only concerned
about other people.
Though her style was
very New Yorkish, Totie
was a native of Hartford,
Conn., who began her pro-
fessional career as a band
singer at the age of 18,
though she already ap-
peared as a "Wunderkind"
on radio at the age of four
and toured the Catskill re-
sort hotels in her teens.
From Georgie Johnston, an
old-time comedian who be-
came her husband 27 years
ago, she learned her effec-
tive mannerism and timing.
Subsequently, he gave up
his own career and became
her musical arranger and
conductor.

Ed Sullivan, who had
caught her act at New
York's Copacabana, in-
troduced her on his Sun-
day night network televi-
sion show and she be-
came an immediate suc-
cess, repeating her ap-
pearance with him a full
40 times. Totie became a
regular on a score of talk
shows hosted by Johnny
Carson, Mery Griffin,
Joey Bishop and Dinah
Shore and guested 125
times on the Mike Doug-
las show aired from
Philadelphia.

Only last year she bowed
in a dramatic role on CBS's
"Medical Center" series,
which netted her an Emmy
nomination. She also was
honored with the American
Guild of Variety Artists'
"Entertainer of the Year"
award.
After a seemingly minor
eye operation in the spring
of 1976, she developed an in-
flammation of her left leg
and the doctors had to am-
putate to save her life. Val-
iantly, she continued to
pursue her career. During a
comeback at the Sahara
where she was greeted by
hundreds of show business
personalities, she was
forced to return to the hospi-
tal for eye surgery. Last fall,
she had a breast operation.
Only in June of this year,
she was forced to postpone a
Sahara opening due to an
allergy which turned out to
be a heart attack.
Totie Fields didn't comp-
lain. She remained an en-
tertainer to the end. She
was beloved by all and,
what is rare here, she had
no enemies.
