Remember My Forgotten Man -- November 11, 2014


Happy Veterans Day, everyone.  "Remember My Forgotten Man" from Mervyn LeRoy and Busby Berkeley's Gold Diggers of 1933 reminds us that we need to remember the men and women who have given a part of their lives, and sometimes their lives, to their country.  Joan Blondell, one of my favorites, lead the ensemble in a powerful number.   Etta Moten was the African American contralto. She later played the lead role in Porgy and Bess.
