The entry in Katz for Pons:
Celebrated coloratura soprano of the Metropolitan Opera who starred in several Hollywood films... RKO’s answer to Columbia’s Grace Moore.
There is a town in Maryland named Lilypons in her honor.
A caricature of Pons as “Lily Swans” appears opposite Grace Moose in The Woods Are Full of Cuckoos (Tashlin, 1937), each trying to outdo the other in hitting high notes.
