The Dress Circle: Bing Crosby in Hollywood
We’re celebrating Bing Crosby in Hollywood on this week’s Dress Circle (8/9 7:00 p.m.) with selections from some of his well-known and lesser known films. On the lesser known side, we’ll visit Bing’s first major appearance with solo work in “The King of Jazz” as well as “The Big Broadcast,” “Mississippi,” “Robin and the Seven Hoods,” and “College Humor.” The well-known side includes “Blue Skies,” “Going My Way,” “Holiday Inn,” a couple of “Road” films, “High Society,” and, of course, “White Christmas.”
He’ll be joined by a few of his friends such as Bob Hope, Fred Astaire, and Danny Kaye for good measure. It’s another evening of nostalgia with some good songs and great singing, so we hope you’ll tune in.
