Lane is credited with discovering the 11-year-old Frances Gumm (Judy Garland). He caught her sisters' act at the Paramount theater in Hollywood. The sisters, Susie and Mary Jane, brought on their younger sister, Frances, who sang "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart". Lane immediately called Jack Robbins, head of the music department at MGM, and told her he'd just heard a great new talent.
Inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 1975.
