Today is the birthday of legendary comedy director Mack Sennett. He would have been 139 years old.
Bing’s first movie was King of Jazz (1930), and he had some other small roles in a couple of movies that same year, but those weren’t really acting parts. He only performed, often with the Rhythm Boys, in those movies. His first real acting experiences came with the six shorts (filmed from 1931-1933) he made with Mack Sennett. In those he sang, usually three songs with repeat performances, but he also played a real character (though heavily based on himself - because he was by now very popular as a singer - with names like Bing Fawcett when he played a plumber😄). In later life Bing alway credited Sennett with teaching him how to be comfortable in front of a camera.
If you have never seen these shorts, have a look (some of them are on YouTube, they’re also available on dvd): they’re wildly different from our comedic sensibilities, but still fun. And of course, there’s that gorgeous voice❤️
The famous Californian home where JFK and Marilyn Monroe reportedly consummated their affair has hit the market — for $5 million (US). The home was originally built for Bing Crosby, and the listing cheekily eludes to the famous affair that reportedly took place at the home — in the attached “casita”.....
“Timeless Tuesday” •
Wabash Cannonball - Roy Acuff, Bing Crosby, Johnny Cash (1932) •
The Carter Family made one of the first recordings of this song in 1932. Another popular version was recorded by Roy Acuff in 1936. This song is part of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list and it is the oldest song on the list! There’s way more cool facts about this song, but I’m trying to keep this post somewhat short lol.
So many singers have covered this song and each one puts their own spin on it almost always changing the lyrics around entirely every time. So that made it challenging to learn the words because, which words do I learn? 🤷🏻♂️
I think my lyrics are most similar to Roy and Bing’s, but I used the same song structure that Cash used. •

Wanting to bring the term “history to life” to a more literal sense, Chelsea focus on the Royal Engineers during the Second World War. Using a technique to animate a still image that was captured in 1943, Chelsea brings the scene to life with an interactive experience of a typical 1930s/40s living room, capturing the moment of when the declaration of war was first announced by Neville Chamberlain on the 3rd of September 1939, broadcasted in homes across the nation. ————————————————————————
Now showing at the Royal Engineers Museum, Gillingham Kent until 21st April 2019.
