Bing Pursues His Billboard Girl Of His Dreams
29 October 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In between his appearance with the Rhythm Boys in The King Of Jazz and his contract with Paramount for feature films, Bing Crosby did a series of short comedies for Mack Sennett. Billboard Girl is one of them and its almost a dress rehearsal for one of Crosby's early feature films, Going Hollywood. If you remember in that one Marian Davies is the lovesick French teacher who falls in love with radio crooner Bing.

Except that in Billboard Girl, Bing has the Davies part. He's a lovesick magazine salesman who falls for college coed Marjorie Kane. He locates her and tries to phone but gets her practical joking brother James Eagles instead. Stewart and his fraternity pals think it would be a real hoot for Bing to meet up with Eagles in drag.

But when he does meet Marjorie you know she's going to fall for Bing the minute a few golden notes emerge. In this case Crosby sings For You and We're You Sincere. Bing never recorded For You on record, but his Brunswick recording of We're You Sincere is a favorite among collectors of Crosbyana.

With sidekick Dick Stewart Bing has a few good comic moments a mere hint of what was to come when he'd team up with Bob Hope several years later. Billboard Girl is typical of the work Crosby did with Mack Sennett in this step up to super stardom.
