Trivia

The 6th out of 8 musical 2-reel shorts Crosby made for recently bankrupt producer Mack Sennett. Sennett had just lost his studio and was hired by Paramount as a unit producer. This is generally considered the best of the series, with a strong title number, attractive supporting cast and excellent production values. See more »

A Precious Short
9 June 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Blue Of The Night is not the best of Bing Crosby's Mack Sennett shorts which were being used to introduce Crosby as Paramount's new star in terms of comedy. I agree with the person who says it's real hard to imagine Franklin Pangborn as a jilted lover. Pangborn and Bing would later work together in Dr. Rhythm although Pangborn's scenes are with Beatrice Lillie and they're marvelous.

But Crosby aficionados will treasure this short subject because besides singing the song that would be his theme we get a chance to hear him Every Time My Heart Sings and My Silent Love, a couple of really great numbers that he never did a studio recording of. They're real gems from Bing's early crooning days and must for every fan to have.

For that reason this film is precious.
