Just what did women see in Bing Crosby?
30 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I've seen a couple of old Warner Bros. cartoons containing Bing Crosby caricatures. To this list I now add "Let It Be Me". A crooner rooster named Bingo makes all the hens swoon. While driving down a country road, he gets a hen named Emily to go into town with him. But once they arrive at a night club, he pretty much ignores her, and has her thrown out when she tries to get his attention. Emily's former beau, meanwhile, decides to take charge.

Personally, I like how they portray Bing Crosby negatively. It's not just that his music style doesn't appeal to me. Crosby was strict with his family almost to the point of cruelty, and his children ended up very damaged. Also, as I understand it, he was an anti-Semite. His nice guy public image must have been the perfect way to get women to like him, hiding what sort of person he really was.

But let's not get sidetracked. While this is an early cartoon (before the Termite Terrace crowd had figured out exactly what path their cartoons would take), it's always worth seeing as a historical reference.
