Though the movie is in black and white, in one scene, when Bing Crosby is singing "Shine On Harvest Moon" in a movie theater, a slide show being projected behind him is in full color, though Bing is still in black and white. See more »
Mary Martin, was a real favorite and got her Hollywood start singing "Daddy" in Cole Porter's Night and Day". 1941. This film enjoyed the talents of Eddie (Rochester), Jack Teagarden (who sang with Tommy Dorsey's orchestra, and my favorite male vocalist, Bing Crosby. Crosby and Martin were so good together, and make you feel like hopping dancing and singing lively with them. It's a pleasure to reminisce about these great musical films.
