"The easy intimacy and casual charm that he cultivated as a vocalist carried over into his acting..."
One of America's favorite actor-crooners, Bing Crosby (1903-77), toplines this collection of six Hollywood musicals, originally produced between 1933 and 1947. The package features: COLLEGE HUMOR (1933), with Bing as a college professor who falls for a comely female student at the same time that she draws the attention of a football star (Richard Arlen); WE'RE NOT DRESSING (1934), with Bing as a deckhand shipwrecked on an island with passengers that include George Burns, Gracie Allen and Carole Lombard; HERE IS MY HEART, with Bing as a radio chanteur who goes undercover as a hotel waiter to get close to a Russian princess with whom he is smitten; MISSISSIPPI (1935), with Bing as a riverboat singer who learns honor from a captain played by W.C. Fields; SING YOU SINNERS (1938), with Bing, Fred MacMurray and Donald O'Connor as three brothers who try to make it in L.A. but get caught up in a series of horse races; and WELCOME STRANGER (1947), with Bing as an earnest young doctor taken under the wing of a curmudgeonly physician (Barry Fitzgerald).
