"But Now I'm Back To Cry My Heart Out, For Just One More Chance"
30 October 2009 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

One More Chance another of the Mack Sennett shorts that Bing Crosby made in the early Thirties concerns just that, Bing trying to get just one more chance with his Missus, Patsy O'Day.

In this short Crosby plays a washing machine salesman with aspirations to be a crooner. It's a since he didn't win Patsy with his sales pitch about clean clothes.

After getting canned as a salesman Bing and Patsy and her lazy uncle who lives with them Arthur Stone, set out cross country to get to California, the land of opportunity. In real life Crosby was doing a famous engagement at the Cocoanut Grove in Los Angeles in 1931.

Bing sings four songs in this, I'd Climb The Highest Mountain which he never recorded, a parody version of one of his early hits I Surrender Dear and two songs identified with the early Crosby as a solo artist after he left Paul Whiteman and the Rhythm Boys, Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams and Just One More Chance. Both are classic early hits for Bing Crosby and prized by collectors. Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams was written by Gordon Clifford and Bing's former Rhythm Boy partner Harry Barris.

This particular Crosby short has a bit more of the slapstick that Mack Sennett is known for, especially at the beginning. Some old vaudeville bits are in this one about Bing making a claim that his washing machine can clean anything. Fans will recognize Lou Costello making the same claim about a vacuum cleaner he was peddling.

In these Sennett shorts Bing Crosby shows the budding talent he had as a comedian which we all know he had to keep up with Bob Hope.
