Searching For A 'Golddigger' by James Bacon
read: "Girls must be breathtakingly beautiful. Age range 18 to 21." Greg
Garrison, producer, walked through the mob and pointed to the girls he wanted to
stay. One beautiful blonde gets up to sing. "You needn't sing, Nancy," said
Greg. She had auditioned before and made it down the final cut but was rejected
because of a little weight problem. Since the last audition, she had taken off
12 pounds. Her name is Nancy Reichert. (she now goes by Sinclair) Although she
doesn't know it, she's going to be a "Golddigger." Greg said, "I chose
Nancy-even before I heard her sing or dance. Somehow you can always pick them
out of the mob."
Nancy began her professional career at the age of ten
appearing in national commercials. A former Radio City Music Hall Rockette, she
moved to Los Angeles and became one of the famed Golddiggers. "My first
performance with the group was a benefit for the Motion Picture Movie Relief
Fund. I was star struck. Every major star you could possibly imagine was there.
We performed with Bob Hope and Les Brown and his Band of Renown." Then on
Thursday, April 7, 1971, Variety announced, "...Chevrolet Will Syndicate 47
Shows By Golddiggers. In one of the largest deals of its kind ever made in
syndication...Chevrolet Presents The Golddiggers." "We had our own Variety Show.
It was so exciting! We filmed the show at the Hollywood Palace
From there we went on to Las Vegas. What a thrill it was to
open for Tony Bennett at Caesar's Palace.
When Nancy left the group, she
married and went back to New York. She performed the role of Peggy Sawyer on
Broadway in "42nd Street," she also headed up the 1st National Tour and the Los
Angeles Company at the Shubert Theatre, where she won the Drama-Logue Critic's
Award for best Performance "My son Jason, was very little then and it was, have
playpen will travel. We had a great adventure. Jason and I traveled the country
together." Some of her favorite roles are Nellie in "South Pacific," the title
roles in "Mame," "Hello Dolly," to the Wicked Queen in Disney's, "Snow White,
The Musical." You may have seen Nancy on "Seventh Heaven, " "The Division,"
"Murphy Brown," and "Philly," to name a few. Some of her film credits include,
"Dirty Love," "After the Storm," "What Women Want," and the musical, "Annie."
She also just won two Best Actress awards for an Independent Film short thriller
called, "By Appointment Only."
Nancy and her husband Dan Comins have been
married for over 20 years. He has a business management company and the Titanic
Jazz Band that performs all over the world. "Jason is Director of Digital
Development for a media company and I also have two great step children.
Danforth, is a member of the Ashland Oregon Shakespearean Co. and daughter Robin
have given us two beautiful grandchildren. What a delight to be performing with
"the girls" again. It's better the second time around!"
