Bing Crosby: Day by Day
During his lifetime, Bing Crosby was one of the most loved entertainers of the twentieth century. He made his name as a singer with a distinctive and innovative style, which helped to transform the musical scene of the early thirties. Radio and films brought him national prominence, and then as his film career developed, he achieved world-wide renown through his portrayal of Father O'Malley and through the hilarious Road films he made with Bob Hope. This book details his life, almost on a daily basis, and, with the aid of many contemporary reviews, produces a fascinating account of one of the most important show business figures of the twentieth century. Through Bing and his interaction with most of the stars of the time, one can virtually trace the history of show business. A discography, a fact file and a large index, which picks up many other show biz icons, supplements what will be a indispensable reference book, not only for those interested in Crosby but anyone researching other stars of the period.
