Hollywood Sings - 1982

This one digs deep into the past with a bunch of songs from old Hollywood movies. I think a lot of these songs are probably not too easy to find. I could be wrong, but who knows.

Some of the more interesting tracks are Jimmy Stewart singing. I bet a lot of you didn't know Jimmy Stewart sang. In the early 30's when sound was still such a novelty just about every star in Hollywood was made to sing at some point. Jimmy was no exception. Another one in the same vain is Rudolph Valentino. I never knew he sang, but here you have it.

The other fantastic one is the Marx Brothers song "Hurray for Captain Spaulding" from Animal Crackers.

Many of the others are interesting and are from films that I haven't seen and chances are you haven't seen either so they are probably new. Have fun with this one walking through Hollywood history.
