The Fabulous Dorseys

1947

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039365/ The rise and rise of the Fabulous Dorsey brothers is charted in this delightful whymsical step down memory lane. Lots of fun watching Hollywood's more than creative version of their careers. one of only about three or four films ("I Dood It", "The Fleet's In") with the great Bob Eberle, a truly class act who never minded that his paperboy spent his tip money on Roy Orbison and Paul Anka records.


The Fabulous Dorseys is a 1947 fictionalized biography which tells the story of Tommy Dorsey and Jimmy Dorsey, from their boyhood in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania through their rise, their breakup, and their personal reunion.
The Dorsey Brothers starred as themselves. Other actors include Janet Blair, William Lundigan, Sara Allgood and Arthur Shields. There are also cameo appearances by Paul Whiteman, Charlie Barnet, Henry Busse, Bob Eberly, Helen O'Connell and Art Tatum.
The Jimmy Dorsey composition and theme song "Contrasts" is played in the movie. "Green Eyes", "Tangerine", "I'll Never Smile Again", "Marie", and "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" are also featured in the movie, along with "To Me" and "Dorsey Concerto". Paul Whiteman and the Orchestra perform "At Sundown".
The film was written by Art Arthur, Richard English and Curtis Kenyon. It was directed by Alfred E. Green.
