Re: Remembering Bing

I'm arranging for another Bing and Errol feature. Was planning for Sunday 14th. October but the Roxy already has something scheduled so I will be having it on Sunday 7th. October at 2.00pm.
Will be screening Errol's first ever film - In Wake of the Bounty. He plays Fletcher Christian who was later played by Clark Gable.
For Bing I'll be showing his six Mack Sennett shorts.
On 3rd. March at the Roxy at 7.00pm is - World of Dance. I am going to be the MC and guess what my introduction music is going to be (hopefully) is Bing singing 'All You Want To Do Is Dance'.
There are two versions on YouTube - recording and the film clip.

Re: Remembering Bing

On the subject of dancing, on my weekly radio program this morning I played Fred Astaire's version of  'I won't dance'. I wonder if Bing sang it.

Re: Remembering Bing

Well, I have the 'green light' to do another Bing and Errol screening.
However it is going to be on Sunday 7th. October instead of the 14th. As the Roxy is already booked for another event.
This year I will be screening Bing's 6 Sennett shorts he made and for Errol it will be his very first film - In Wake of the Bounty, just over an hour.
Hope w have a good turn out - plenty of time for publicity.
So, save your pennies and come to Morton for the w/e - there is a good size motel, Mexican restaurant at the site and some other food outlets around town.

Re: Remembering Bing

Well, I've been allowed to do another Bing and Errol double bill remembering their day of departure from this world.
However, I have to settle for 7th. October as the 14th. is already taken for the Roxy Theatre.
This year I will show Bing's 6 Sennett shorts.
Errol will be shown in his very first film - In Wake of the Bounty. An Australian made film by pioneer film maker - Charles Chauvel. Errol plays Fletcher Christian and it was made in 1933 and runs for 60 minutes. A couple of years later Clark Gable played the same role.
So, put it in your diary for a 2.00pm kick off.

Re: Remembering Bing

Again this year I will be having a Bing/Errol screening.
However instead of Sunday 14th. October (something else is already booked for the Roxy), it will be on Sunday 7th. October at 2.00pm, admission $5.00 per person.
I'll be screening Errol's very first film,  'In Wakeof the Bounty'. He plays the part of Fletcher Christian and he was 23/24.
I will then screen Bing's 6 Mack Sennett shorts.
So, start saving the pennies and visit Morton.

Re: Remembering Bing

Well, I'm presenting another Bing and Errol double but it is on Sunday 7th. October at the Morton Roxy.
The 14th. Was already booked for another event.
Anyway, we will be showing Errol Flynn's very first film - In Wake of the Bounty - from 1933. He plays the part of Fletcher Christian - the part played by Clark Gable in 1935.
Flynn was 23 and later that year he was in England appearing briefly in a couple of films and then in 1935 he was in Hollywood with Warner Brothers.
The Bing segment will be the six shorts he made for Mack Sennett.
So, jump on a jet plane or Greyhound Bus or train and come to Morton.
Just hope we have a successful day.

Re: Remembering Bing

Ron, I've not seen any versions of the Bounty movies. I hope your presentation goes well. Sorry I can't be there.

Re: Remembering Bing

Rundown to Sunday 7th. October to my double bill presentation at the Roxy Theatre in Morton Washington - about 100 miles from both Seattle and Portland airports and 50 miles from Amtrak Centralia station.
Showing Errol Flynn in 'In Wake of the Bounty' made in 1933 at the tender age of 23 and playing Fletcher Christian (Clark Gable played the same part in 1935's 'Mutiny on the Bounty')
Flynn then went to England and appeared in some minor roles later in the year. Then to the US and a couple of other minor roles and then his first big appearance as Captain Blood in 1935 and his rise to fame.
For the Bing sevtion I will be screening the 6 Mack Sennett shorts that he made - 1931/32/33 - 2 in each year.
Admission is $5.00 - so, jump a plane, a bus, a train, a car or Shanks' pony.
Had to do it on the 7th. as theatre is booked for the 14th.
I'll be playing Bing's Sing-along CD prior to the start and at intermission.
Ron

Re: Remembering Bing

Ron has supplied a copy of the Roxy's weekly notice of events. It includes a photo of Ron with Bing, as well as the earlier poster  and the weekly list with Ron's own contribution at the bottom.

Re: Remembering Bing

Did report elsewhere that we had 25 paying customers.
On another note - just finished reading a book called McNally's Secret by Lawrence Sanders, an American author but uses British words like 'bloke'.
Anyway towards the end he writes of McNally.....I played more Sinatra, and Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, early Bing Crosby ('Just a Gigolo'), and Ella Fitzgerald singing Cole Porter. Then I listened to my favourite balladeer; Fred Astaire. ...... But no one has ever done a better vocal of 'A Fine Romance'.

I like Bing and Dixie's version of this song.
The book was published in 1991.
