The great Harry Lauder
16 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

We in America were fortunate indeed that Sir Harry Lauder got to tour this country. Even more fortunate that Lauder made a series of short films with some of his best known Scot's ballads. In this musical short his biggest hit Roamin' in the Gloamin' is performed.

Some of Lauder's Scot's patter is also included here. Not that he said anything particularly witty, but his friendly affableness was positively infectious. Night after night he had the audience singing along with him.

Mickey Rooney imitates him in Babes On Broadway and so does Greer Garson in Random Harvest. But here's the real deal.
