Discussion of old movies and the culture that made them.
What fun! Thanks.The first time I heard Fred sing was in a long-ago viewing of The Princess Comes Across. I think the song was about a concertina. His pal in the movie was played by William Frawley. They could not have imagined a classic sitcom in their future!
Wow, I never saw that one. I'm surprised the studios didn't tag him for more musicals. We know that lots of Hollywood actors came from the theatre, and some from radio, but I wonder how many there were that came from big bands? Bing, of course, and Rosemary Clooney, just off the top of my head.
If I didn't know this was Fred MacMurray, I never woulda guessed it.
