Fascinatin' Rhythm: Bing Crosby's Movie Songs, Part 1, 02/29/20


2/29      Episode #2009

Bing Crosby’s career took off in the late twenties and early thirties when he left the Paul Whiteman Orchestra’s Rhythm Boys to perform as a soloist. He was soon making two-reel movies in which he crooned to a pretty girl. For the rest of his career, he made musical and non-musical movies alike, but in almost every one of them he sang--from The Big Broadcast in 1932 to High Society in 1956.
