Jimmy Durante: His Show Business Career, with an Annotated Filmography and Discography
From his humble beginnings as a Coney Island piano player, Jimmy Durante was one of America’s best-loved entertainers for nearly seven decades. Known for his distinctive “schnozzle” and raspy voice, the multitalented performer became a stage, screen and recording star. Every aspect of Jimmy Durante’s career is covered here: his early vaudeville and Broadway days; the 38 movies he made; his radio appearances; the mixture of new and old material he brought to television in the late 1950s; and his work as a singer and composer.
