  • Editorial Reviews

    One of the most popular entertainers of all-time, Bing Crosby was a superstar of movies, music, radio and television during a spectacular career that lasted over 50 years. He remains beloved around the world for his easygoing charm, mesmerizing voice and on-screen charisma. The Bing Crosby Collection showcases 6 rare films including College Humor, We’re Not Dressing, Here is My Heart, Mississippi, Sing You Sinners and Welcome Stranger. Featuring Bing in top-form singing some of his most memorable songs such as “June in January,” “Swanee River”“ and “I've Got a Pocketful of Dreams,” this timeless collection will entertain longtime fans and introduce a whole new generation to the legendary style of the most popular singing star of the 20th century! College Humor (1933) A college professor (Bing Crosby) and the school’s football star (Richard Arlen) fall for the same beautiful co-ed in this comedy featuring George Burns and Gracie Allen. We’re Not Dressing (1934) A lowly deckhand (Bing Crosby) is shipwrecked on an island with several passengers including the heiress (Carole Lombard) he's smitten with plus two wacky locals (George Burns and Gracie Allen). Here Is My Heart (1934) When a wealthy radio crooner (Bing Crosby) falls for an icy Russian princess, he goes undercover as a hotel waiter in order to gain access to her suite - and her heart. Mississippi (1935) Set in the Old South, a disgraced gentleman (Bing Crosby) takes a singing job on a riverboat where the captain (W.C. Fields) tries to teach him the meaning of honor. Sing You Sinners (1938) Bing Crosby, Fred MacMurray and Donald O’Connor star as a trio of talented brothers who travel to Los Angeles seeking fortune only to get mixed up at the racetrack. Welcome Stranger (1947) In this charming musical comedy, a crotchety old physician (Barry Fitzgerald) finds himself sharing his medical practice with an impetuous younger doctor (Bing Crosby).

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Bing Thing November 18, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    What a treat for all Bing Crosby fans, or music & movie lovers in general! 5 of Bing's much sought after 1930's films, plus one of his best from the 1940's! For me, all worth it for 'Sing You Sinners' alone, a crystal clear, sparkling copy of this, one of, if not his best movie from the 1930's? The others are all excellent as well, all offering some of the top 'pop' tunes of the day, 'We're Not Dressing' packed with tunefull early Bing, plus the gorgeous Carole Lombard to boot, 'Mississippi' a riot of fun with the great W.C. Fields as a riverboat Captain, plus, the gorgeous Joan Bennett to boot, 'College Humour', Bing's second starring role in a feature, plus, the gorgeous Mary Carlisle to boot, 'Welcome Stranger' from 1946, great songs, great humour,plus, the gorgeous Joan Caulfield to boot [has anyone appeared with more gorgeous women than Bing?], and, one of Bing's rarest in 'Hear Is My Heart', all delightful in their own way, and a must for anyone interested in the history of musical films, and Bing, long before Elvis or the Beatles, Bing had already done it all! According to my calculations, there are still 8 of Bing's 1930's films yet to be put out on DVD, so plenty of good material for another 'Young Bing' collection down the track, hopefully! I for one, can't wait!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A dream come true! November 19, 2010
    This is the kind of package Crosby fans have dreamed of for years. Six rare films in the best quality we have ever seen them. "Here Is My Heart" has only been seen in the last 70 years in a version which is so poor that it's almost transparent and now to have it in a crisp print with good sound is magical. The Crosby voice of the 1930s was Bing at his vocal peak and these films display this to good effect. "We're Not Dressing" and "Mississippi" have had only limited releases on DVD whilst this is the debut for the other movies. "Sing You Sinners" and "Welcome Stranger" in particular are very welcome indeed. The only extras are trailers from 3 of the films but I'm not complaining. At $6 a film, this is good value.

    A great package and I hope Universal will produce a volume 2.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Some weak programmers but great songs. March 16, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    This Bing Crosby collection is the latest in the Universal series which showcase a particular performer. Like other such collections, these are not necessarily first class classic films but rather a good cross-section of a performer's work at the height of their careers. In this case, we get 5 programmers tracing Crosby's career at Paramount in the thirties and one larger scale film from the late forties. Primarily, we get the chance to hear Bing deliver some really excellent songs and watch his transition from singer to actor.

    First off is 1933's "College Humour". This is really a Jack Oakie vehicle with the usual assortment of comics and supporting players which was very typical of Paramount at this time. Crosby plays a college professor and really only appears to deliver his songs - but what songs! Often in such films, there will be a standout moment which belies the mediocrity surrounding it. In this case, amongst the tedious college shenanigans and the focus on football, Crosby delivers "Down the Old Ox Road" and "Learn to Croon". What is entertaining beyond the richness of his baritone at this time is that the songs are actually mixed with rhyming dialogue and choruses. Their presentation is much more creative than you could imagine. The film also contains a few pre-code moments which might raise a few eye-brows if you are concentrating.

    Next off, and with Crosby now in the lead, is "We're not Dressing". This film has already been issued in the Carole Lombard Collection so it is a pity that Universal did not issue a different film for this package. Crosby sings a lot of hits ("Love thy Neighbour", "May I" etc) but it is a nasty little film, a loose and vulgar version of the J M Barrie play "The Admirable Crichton".

    Bing's "Mele Kalikimaka" was used in the soundtrack of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. He never performed it in any of his own films.
