Bing Elopes

Sing Bing Sing finds America's newest heartthrob Bing Crosby doing his level best trying to elope with his true love Florine McKinney. But her father Irving Bacon has resolved to stop this disgrace to his family at any cost.

Of course having Bacon approve of Franklin Pangborn as a fiancé is enough to make any girl throw themselves at Bing Crosby. The film is madcap comedy chase, typical of Mack Sennett's silent era work with the Keystone Kops.

Bing gets to sing a three songs. In My Hideaway and Lovable are a couple of items he never commercially recorded. Snuggled On Your Shoulder is an item he did do for Brunswick at the time of this film's release. However Crosby would have to wait nearly 25 years before he did Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea. He did that for a Decca label album New Tricks which he did with Buddy Cole and a jazz trio.

Part of the film involves McKinney's pet gorilla who aids the runaway lovers in a variety of ways, all of them rather funny. It's very reminiscent of Bing Crosby and Carole Lombard's pet bear Droopy in We're Not Dressing the following year.

Crosby's Mack Sennett shorts were a great stepping stone in his career and this is no false step.
