Sunday Hollywood Musical Treat!

From Irving Berlin's Call Me Madam, a pleasant musical interlude between Ethel Merman and Donald O'Connor:



This is the song that drove home to me Berlin's propensity for composing on the black keys. A lovely duet.

Oh my, those glasses! I love 'em!

What a great song, a great duet, two great performers. Thank you!

As a very young lad, I recall sitting through every movie with Donald O'Conner waiting patiently for Francis the Talking Mule to show up. I was sorely disappointed most times, and am only recently developing an appreciation for these ol' musicals.
