Bing Crosby (at age 51 in ) became the leading drive for the "High Tor" project which brought indirectly creative film talents at Paramount Studios where Crosby's Production office was situated.

He performed with a group called the Musicaladers as a singer and a drummer. In the mids, Crosby formed a duo with his friend, Al Rinker, and the pair went to Los Angeles in hopes of landing their big break.
They quickly became a popular vaudeville act, which they called "Two Boys and a Piano," and played numerous shows on the West Coast.
The duo joined Paul Whiteman and his jazz band for a time and then formed a trio with Harry Barris known as the Rhythm Boys.
The Rhythm Boys often performed as part of Whiteman's act. Many of Crosby's early songs reflected his love for jazz and its influence on his sound.
He was skilled at scat-singing and showed a talent for jazz-style phrasing. In addition to releasing a few singles, the Rhythm Boys appeared together in one of Crosby's first films, 's King of Jazz.
Crosby soon launched his solo career, landing his own radio show. Debuting in , his radio program became a big success, attracting as many as 50 million listeners during its peak, and lasting nearly 30 years on the airwaves.
That same year, Crosby scored a number of hits with such songs as "I Found a Million-Dollar Baby" and "Just One More Chance. In the early s, Crosby signed a contract with Paramount Pictures.
His slim frame and protruding ears may not have been the features of a traditionally handsome leading man, but Crosby's easy charm and smooth patter quickly won over film audiences.
He started out in a number of musical comedies, such as 's Here Is My Heart , with Kitty Carlisle; and 's Anything Goes , with Ethel Merman. Crosby also starred in 's Pennies from Heaven , which gave him another hit single with its title track.
Crosby's film career continued to flourish, reaching its peak in the s. He co-starred with comedian Bob Hope in the wildly popular series of Road pictures, which began with s The Road to Singapore.
The on-screen dynamic duo forged a genuine affection for each other off-screen as well. Crosby and Hope remained friends for life, and appeared together in numerous films.
With Dorothy Lamour along as their female lead, they made seven Road movies together. The following year, Crosby teamed up with another musical star, Fred Astaire, for Holiday Inn.
The film featured music by Irving Berlin, including one of Crosby's all-time greatest hits, "White Christmas. That's how he introduced me to his cronies when he dragged me along to the studio or racetrack By the time I was ten or eleven he had stepped up his campaign by adding lickings to the regimen.
Each Tuesday afternoon he weighed me in, and if the scale read more than it should have, he ordered me into his office and had me drop my trousers I dropped my pants, pulled down my undershorts and bent over.
Then he went at it with the belt dotted with metal studs he kept reserved for the occasion. Quite dispassionately, without the least display of emotion or loss of self-control, he whacked away until he drew the first drop of blood, and then he stopped.
It normally took between twelve and fifteen strokes. As they came down I counted them off one by one and hoped I would bleed early When I saw Going My Way I was as moved as they were by the character he played.
Father O'Malley handled that gang of young hooligans in his parish with such kindness and wisdom that I thought he was wonderful too. Instead of coming down hard on the kids and withdrawing his affection, he forgave them their misdeeds, took them to the ball game and picture show, taught them how to sing.
By the last reel, the sheer persistence of his goodness had transformed even the worst of them into solid citizens.
Then the lights came on and the movie was over. All the way back to the house I thought about the difference between the person up there on the screen and the one I knew at home.
Crosby's younger son Phillip vociferously disputed his brother Gary's claims about their father.
Around the time Gary made his claims, Phillip stated to the press that "Gary is a whining, bitching crybaby, walking around with a two-by-four on his shoulder and just daring people to nudge it off.
My dad was not the monster my lying brother said he was; he was strict, but my father never beat us black and blue, and my brother Gary was a vicious, no-good liar for saying so.
I have nothing but fond memories of Dad, going to studios with him, family vacations at our cabin in Idaho, boating and fishing with him. To my dying day, I'll hate Gary for dragging Dad's name through the mud.
He wrote Going My Own Way out of greed. He wanted to make money and knew that humiliating our father and blackening his name was the only way he could do it.
He knew it would generate a lot of publicity. That was the only way he could get his ugly, no-talent face on television and in the newspapers.
My dad was my hero. I loved him very much. He loved all of us too, including Gary. He was a great father. However, Dennis and Lindsay Crosby confirmed that Bing sometimes subjected his sons to harsh physical discipline and verbal put-downs.
Regarding the writing of Gary's memoir, Lindsay said, "I'm glad [Gary] did it. I hope it clears up a lot of the old lies and rumors.
He added, "We were brought up that way. He was not out to be vicious, to beat children for his kicks. Crosby's will established a blind trust in which none of the sons received an inheritance until they reached the age of Lindsay Crosby died in at age 51, and Dennis Crosby died in at age 56, both by suicide from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

There have been disputes between Crosby's two families beginning in the late s. When Dixie died in , her will provided that her share of the community property be distributed in trust to her sons.
After Crosby's death in , he left the residue of his estate to a marital trust for the benefit of his widow, Kathryn, and HLC Properties, Ltd.
In , Dixie's trust sued HLC and Kathryn for declaratory relief as to the trust's entitlement to interest, dividends, royalties, and other income derived from the community property of Crosby and Dixie.
Relying on a retroactive amendment to the California Civil Code , Dixie's trust brought suit again, in , alleging that Crosby's right of publicity was community property, and that Dixie's trust was entitled to a share of the revenue it produced.
The trial court granted Dixie's trust's claim. The California Court of Appeal reversed, however, holding that the settlement barred the claim. In light of the court's ruling, it was unnecessary for the court to decide whether a right of publicity can be characterized as community property under California law.

He has appeared in three films that have been selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant: King of Jazz , Road to Morocco and Going My Way I think popular music in this country is one of the few things in the 20th century that have made great strides in reverse.
Because music always has to progress, and no-one could have opened the door to the future like he did. Honestly, I think I've stretched a talent which is so thin it's almost transparent over a quite unbelievable term of years.
Once or twice I've been described as a light comedian. I consider this the most accurate description of my abilities I've ever seen.
I don't see any purpose in trying to stretch something out that was once acceptable and that now is merely adequate, if that. I don't know what the reason for this condition is, unless it's apathy.
I just don't have the interest in singing. I am not keen about it any more. Songs all sound alike to me, and some of them so shoddy and trivial.
I don't mean I didn't sing some cheap songs in the old days, but I had such a tremendous interest in singing and was so wrapped up in the work that it didn't matter.
I don't know how to diagnose the condition, but it seems to me that possibly this apathy, this lack of desire, when I have to go to a recording session, transmits itself into nervous exhaustion and fatigue.
But Frank gets picked on by people who want to see how tough he is and he usually obliges them with a demonstration. Like all Sicilians, if he is a friend he will always be a friend -- and if he is an enemy, go on hating.

Act, sing, dance, make you laugh. She was everything. I had a great affection for her. Such a tragedy.

He knew exactly what he was doing every moment, and what each prop was supposed to do. That My Little Chickadee way of talking of his was natural.
He's so quick-footed and so light that it's impossible not to look like a hay-digger compared with him. She was great with the crew and they all loved her.
It certainly helped Boles - on the strength of it, he got a lot of pictures. I must say, he had a bigger voice and a better delivery for that kind of song than I had.
My crooning style wouldn't have been good for such a number, which was supposed to have been delivered a la breve, like "The Vagabond Song".
I might have flopped with it. I might have been cut out of "The King of Jazz". I might never have been given another crack at a song in any picture.
It shows that everybody in this country has a chance to succeed. I was just lucky enough to have Leo McCarey take me by the hand and lead me through the picture.
