Alas, on 5/19/48, Allen got hit by a car and died. Thus---natch---putting an end to the act as a duo. After Allen's death, his partner seldom performed again. She would eventually become Mae West's maid. Probably not a bad gig; still. . ..
A 1975 issue of the Daily Pennyslvanian deemed the 1973 Haywood docu "I'm the Prettiest Piece in Greece" "A strange and moving comment on fame and oblivion." That seems to sum it all up quite succinctly. During seventeen years of "live" performance, Haywood and Allen managed to cut only three record tracks. . . in the mid-'40s. This is one of them. Pardon the lousy sound; WWII low-grade shellac is at least partially to blame. Not to mention lousy ("use once only") needles.
