Guest
Charles Laughton
regulars
The Modernaires
Paula Kelly
The Frank DeVol Orchestra
Highlights:
Charles Laughton refrains from his customary readings. Instead, he joins Rosie in singing "Camptown Races,"
"Oh, Susanna" and "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee"–and does them with gusto. Rosmary solos "Sunny Side Up" and
"April Love."
"Keep Your Sunny Side Up" is the opening song of an exciting show, and Rosie does justice to the song.
Rosie and Fred Fricky team up for several well-aimed jokes. Rosie takes off on Pat Boone's newest hit, "April Love."
Charles Laughton is introduced by Miss Clooney as she tells the audience that Mr. Laughton will make his singing debut.
Laughton is on his own as he begins his symposium of famous songs from different countries. First, he sings a hunting
song from his own country, England–but Fricky ruins the songs by laughing. And he is called to apologize, which he does.
Laughton proposes to sing with Rosemary a medley of American songs which was previously rehearsed and Rosie agrees.
Among the songs was "On Moonlight Bay" and "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee." The Modernaires with Paula Kelly take over
with a medley of Tommy Dorsey all-time hits. The songs were: "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," "There Are Such Things,"
"When It Hits You" and "Marie." Rosie sings "Lover, Come Back to Me." Charles gives thanks to Rosemary, and a plug for
the book he recently wrote, "Tell Me a Story," is included. A commercial stint is done by Rosie (singing) and Laughton
(oratory).
Rosemary Clooney sings her greatest hit, giving thanks for all the records bought of this version of "Hey There."
The audience applauds tremendously as she does the song, and finishes the show.
