Storyline

The iceman is in love with a pretty girl, and an old spinster is pining and cooking for him. But his dreamgirl prefers crooners like Bing Crosby, Rudy Vallee, or Eddie Cantor. After leaving her, he spots the sign of an imitator, and thinks he could ask him to do the crooning for him while he is trying to date his girl. The imitator accepts, and at first the trick is working, until the imitator gets too cold amid the ice in the back of the van and the girl gets suspicious.

Yes, I do enjoy I Only Have Eyes for You. In 1937, with more homes coming within reach of electricity, icemen were on their way out. The spinster bird whom he visited offered goodies but he declined, so he proceeded to the home of Katie Canary, whom he adored. She loved only radio crooners like Bing Crosby, and had the radio on, listening to him sing, "Let It Be Me". So, the iceman came upon Professor Mockingbird, professional imitator. He did several imitations, including the one that I most fondly remember, pretending to play "Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet" on calliope. Then he began to croon "I Only Have Eyes For You", and rode in back of ice truck, to fool Katie Canary, but caught cold so it all backfired. The radio was removed, and an electric refrigerator put in its place, so the iceman would not come to THAT house any more, and his girlfriend got this counterfeit crooner! He wound up marrying the unattractive spinster, enjoying her wonderful cooking.
