Paul Andersen, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- The number 33 can mean many things. With its double open sides and rounded curves, it can be an open invitation to caricaturists. Taken against 100, it signifies one-third, though at some future point a one will need to be added to get to that century mark.

The name Florence Foster Jenkins probably holds little weight among serious opera fans. And who can blame them? Although a success during her 12-year career in the 1930s and ’40s, the attention-starved soprano was unable to carry a note. However, she consistently drew sell-out crowds for her tone-deaf renditions of operatic standards from the likes of Brahms, Mozart and Strauss, among others. Although her performances were viewed as a joke by her fans and peers, Jenkins was thoroughly convinced of her own greatness and approached each recital with poise and dutifulness.
