This Eddie Cantor collection includes rare and lost
performances for which he is known and loved. In
one of these that employs trick photography, Eddie
is every member of a barbershop quartet singing
“Wait Till The Sun Shines Nellie,” “Golden Wedding
Day” and “I Want A Girl (Just Like The Girl That
Married Dear Old Dad).” Of course, performances
of his most popular songs (some with alternate
lyrics) are here, including “Ma (He’s Makng Eyes
At Me),” “Ballin’ The Jack,” For Me And My Gal,”
“Waiting For The Robert E. Lee,” and many more.
Not one to hog the spotlight, Eddie shares vocals
with Connie Russell, Johnny Johnston and Jean
Parker, plus performs a live medley of tunes with
legendary guitarist Perry Botkin—he played with
Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Bob Hope, Fred Astaire, and the Dorsey Brothers
to name a few!
We’re also including a true gem; the last performance by Shemp Howard with
The Three Stooges in a side-splittingly hilarious skit. And, of course, this tribute
is topped off with Eddie Cantor meeting up with his old pal, Sidney Fields
(remember Mr. Guffy?) in a garage.
