Birth of the Blues / Blue Skies

A double dose of crooner Bing Crosby begins with 'Birth of the Blues' (1941) in which he's a clarinet player who wants to break out of the traditional orchestral vibe and start a jazz band. Mary Martin co-stars. Then 'Blue Skies' (1946) has Bing vying with Fred Astaire for the attentions of Joan Caulfield. Full of classic Irving Berlin numbers like 'Puttin' on the Ritz', 'You Keep Coming Back Like A Song' and 'White Christmas'.
