Bing's Boy Strikes Out
16 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a decent ghost story. Gary Crosby, the forgotten son of Bing Crosby, is in quest of a folk song. Somehow he has been given directions to a music store in the woods. He parks his car, proceeds on foot, and find himself in the presence of an old man who us utterly uncommunicative. Apparently, this guy is a rockabilly star and normally gets what he wants. He is verbally abusive to those around him and driven to feather his nest. He throws money on the counter and grabs an old guitar, heading for the woods. While there, he hears someone singing a beautiful song. Sensing someone behind him, he turns and sees a pretty young woman in a sort of peasant dress. She teaches him her song which begins to parallel his activities, though he is too dense to catch the drift. She warns him that she is taken, but he misunderstands. He gets romantic with her but only because he feels he can get the rights to her song. She lets him know that the only way this will happen is if he promises to love her and take care of her. And, naturally, there is a guy who is bound to show up and he isn't going to be happy. The strength of this episode is in the beautiful melody that evolves as the story does, Crosby's selfish, obnoxious character, and an oppressive setting that the bewildered rocker can't figure out. Things get a little predictable at the conclusion and the slang is really dated now, but it's a pretty tight little story.
