Of all the musicians to become stars of the silver screen, Bing Crosby remains one of the most successful and the most convincing. This six-film overview of Crosby's early movie career includes his roles as a lovelorn professor in College Humor (1933); as a sailor stranded on an island with a socialite (Carole Lombard) in 1934's We're Not Dressing; and in 1934's Here Is My Heart, as a waiter smitten with a princess (Kitty Carlisle). Also included, Crosby teams up with W.C. Fields in 1935's Mississippi and stars as a gambler, with Fred MacMurray and Donald O'Connor, in Sing You Sinners (1938). And in Welcome Stranger (1947), Crosby is a doctor filling in for a popular colleague.
