BIRTH OF THE BLUES:As a child Jeff Lambert (Bing Crosby) hangs out in New Orleans Basin Street playing hot swing on his clarinet instead of the classics his father prefers. Hes Inspired by an African-American group there and some years later at the turn of the century sets out to form a jazz band of his own. With cornetist Memphis (Brian Donlevy) singer Betty Lou Cobb (Mary Martin) and trombonist Jack Teagarden (Of the Original Dixieland Jazz Group after which the story is patterned) hes on his way.A veritable history of jazz follows. From jump and jive to sweet romanticism half a century of popular hits is given spectacular treatment. By the Light of the Silvery Moon is sung in a theatre with lantern slides on the screen. Singer Ruby Elzys St. Louis Blues is backed by a chorus of eighty. And Wait Till The Sun Shines Nellie brings Crosby and Martin together in a knockout duet.BLUE SKIES:For what Fred Astaire Had announced would be his last film no expense was spared. This musical extravaganza boasts 30 Irving Berlin songs 47 sets sumptuous costumes and a budget of $3 000 000. The result is sensational. (And fortunately Astaire did not retire from films!)Dancing star Jed Potter (Astaire) and singer/nightclub owner Johnny Adams (Bing Crosby) are both in love with songstress Mary OHara (Joan Caulfield). She marries Johnny but his passion for buying and selling nightclubs drives them apart. So Jed steps in hoping to win Marys heart - until fate steps in and changes the lives of all three. The most outstanding number is Astaires famous Puttin on the Ritz a split-screen gem with a chorus of miniature Astaires tap-dancing behind him. Designed by Astaire it took five weeks of back-breaking physical work to achieve. Other highlights find Astaire and Crosby as A Couple of Song and Dance Men and Crosby crooning a wealth of Berlin tunes including the Oscar nominated You Keep Coming Back Like A Song. With its superb stars and sparkling numbers Blue Skies is one of the all-time great musicals!
