Crosby and Cagney

I'm looking for anything with Bing Crosby and James Cagney together. I'm a big fan of both men. Can anyone help? Carmela

Carmela,  They appeared together in a Command Performance radio show, 30 August 1942, when they did a Vaudeville scene and sang Down By The Old Mill Stream accompanied by the Kay Kyser Orchestra.

I have my doubts if there are any others.

Re: Crosby and Cagney

Richard- Malcolm sent me a list of when they appeared together. I had James Cagney on the Kraft Music Hall but I can't find it.  I'll get back to you later. Carmela

Re: Crosby and Cagney

Carmela, 

Your word ''interaction'' is well chosen. Some of these items are private functions. 

Some of the radio shows you quote have the same origins. ''The Bureau of Public Relations'' show of 3 August 1942 and the  ''Command Performance # 30'' of the same date are differently edited versions of the same material. The Command Performance version appeared on a  Spokane LP 32  Der Bingle Volume 5 and is otherwise fairly widely circulated. 

Of the entertainment items, I'm reasonably sure that the KMH broadcast of 1937 has not survived. The songs Bing sang are known but the precise involvement of Cagney is speculative and based on news reviews of the time. Unless someone knows better!

Re: Crosby and Cagney

Thanks Richard!, You are so knowledgeable!!  Maybe, The person who made me The Kraft Show taped it years ago? In 1937 he had to be around 20 yrs.old. And what recording devise did he use? This is a mystery. I know I have it. I remember listening to it.
