Bing Crosby was born in Tacoma on May 3, 1903, and he was a recent mention in my Music Appreciation class. This weekend on TCM, they’re showing the classic movie High Society, which stars Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and there’s a scene with Louis Armstrong. I’ve only seen that one scene so I’m recording the whole movie this time and watching it : http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/78008/High-Society/
He’s mentioned in the class mainly as a contrast to Louis Armstrong, so it’s interesting to see the two together in the movie.
Here’s Bing Crosby’s version of “Dinah”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlPLXNsz4GA
