All the 40's

From the 1940's - 

Al Jolson 1930 -40's  Anniversary Waltz, The Spaniard that blighted my life and Waiting for the Robert E. Lee. A man who made the right decision - to star in a 'Talkie' - Milton Berle turned it down. What a mistake. I remember seeing the film The Al Jolson Story and one of his innovations was to build a runway from the stage out into the audience. 

Doris Day and Quicksilver from 1949. She of course was a big star in music and films for over 40 years, often appearing with the Rock Hudson.

Judy Garland performs Meet me in St. Louis from the 1944 film. I remember seeing the film as a child and thought it was wonderful. Now it seems stilted.
