Thanks for the tip! Now, if I can only find Lillian Roth singing "Little Alimony Sal" in Story Conference
, another stellar 1934 Vitaphone musical comedy short, on DVD.
I've read about that Cole Porter biopic: alas, written without Algonquin Round Table support (don't know what Dorothy Parker was doing in 1945-1946, but Benchley and Woolcott by then had gone to the expensive restaurant in the hereafter) and filmed without Fred Astaire and Oscar Levant in the cast. Also hear that Arthur Q Bryan and Mel Blanc are contributors, but that there is no scene with Bryan singing "It's All Wight WIth Me"
Wonder if Cary Grant sings as well as Vernon Dent does in Good Morning, Eve
- and El does in various films.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87Av6maPocI
