Product Description

The Bing Crosby Collection: Birth Of The Blues & Blue Skies DVD

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. 

A fantastic double bill from the legendary Bing Crosby.

Birth Of The Blues (Dir. Victor Schertzinger, 1941): Bing Crosby and Mary Martin star as two jazz artists in the swinging world of 1920's New Orleans. Crosby is Jeff Lambert, a clarinet player who is out to start a band called the Basin Street Hot-Shots. When Betty Lou (Martin) joins as vocalist, romance ensues between everyone involved, stirring things up a bit. The film pays homage to Dixieland greats such as Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong, and contains many musical numbers filled with cool clarinets and sizzling jam sessions, such as: "Birth of the Blues", "Melancholy Baby", "St. Louis Blues", and "St. James Infirmary."

Blue Skies (Dir. Stuart Heisler, 1941): The owner of a nightclub (Crosby) and a dancing star (Astaire) play friends turned romantic rivals in this musical featuring the songs of Irving Berlin. A nostalgic, loosely constructed musical that follows the years-long rivalry between two musical stars who love the same woman. Paul Draper, rather than Astaire, was originally cast in the role of the disk jockey. Songs include: "Puttin' on the Ritz," "A Couple of Song and Dance Men," "You Keep Coming Back Like a Song."
