OK - so you're dying to know what Dennis Morgan and Gordon MacRae looked and sounded like back in the good ole' days.
Well - here's Dennis Morgan.......sigh.
Dennis Morgan played the sailor heartthrob in the holiday movie, "Christmas In Connecticut" - one of my favorite holiday movies. I never liked Barbara Stanwyck much - she plays the female love interest, but even so, I love this movie. I would have gone loony over Dennis Morgan myself.
And now - here's Gordon MacRae (I just learned how to embed the video in the blog so you don't have to click and go there....)
Gordon MacRae as Billy Bigelow, trying to go straight because he thinks he's going to have a child.....this is the most touching song from "Carousel".
And finally - my mother and father long before they thought of being anyone's parents....in their dating days - circa 1946 or 1947.....
Do you wonder why I thought Mr. Morgan and Mr. MacRae were so handsome? The three of them might have been brothers - my dad and those two actor/singers. My father could sing, too. He was in the choir in college along with my mother (where they met), and he used to play piano - the Moonlight Sonata was his specialty. It's too bad maybe that Hollywood never got a good look at him, because they'd have slapped him in pictures so fast.....and my mom would have had to marry someone else (although she could have been in movies, too) - and then, where would I be? But anyway, you can see what I'm talking about here.
