Collection of documentaries, features and television episodes that examine the lives and careers of four of the best-loved crooners. Frank Sinatra hosts two episodes of 'The Frank Sinatra Show' (1950), a variety show featuring the talents of Stump and Stumpy, Peggy Lee, Bob Hope and Kim Novak. 'Second Chorus' (1941) is a musical comedy starring Fred Astaire and Hank Taylor as competitive trumpet players in a college band. 'Royal Wedding' (1951) sees Astaire star alongside Jane Powell as a brother and sister song and dance duo. 'Road to Hollywood' (1946) is a documentary... that looks at the work of Bing Crosby. Selling over half a billion records in the first half of the 20th century, Crosby quickly became a popular influence within the music and film industries, dominating the box office throughout the 1940s. 'Reaching for the Moon' (1930) is a black and white musical featuring the vocal talents of Crosby singing Irving Berlin's famous 'Lower Than Lowdown'. Dean Martin hosts an episode of the popular American show 'The Colgate Comedy Hour' with Jerry Lewis, featuring Janis Paige, Danny Arnold and The Johnny Conrad Dancers. 'At War With the Army' (1950) is a musical comedy that sees Martin and Lewis team up again as Sergeant Puccinelli and Private Korwin, two soldiers with very different agends. [show more]
