Mississippi (1935, Paramount)

As “Tom Grayson”

Cast: W.C. Fields, Joan Bennett, Queenie Smith, Gail Patrick

Summary: A fine cast is featured in this musical comedy adventure with riverboat captain W.C. Fields as Commodore Jackson and singer Crosby as Tom Grayson. Fields steals the show as Bing portrays a peace-loving gentleman who wants nothing to do with the Southern tradition of dueling, much to the dismay of his fiancé. Riverboat Captain Commodore Jackson showcases the singing talents of young Tom and manages to trump-up some un-wanted publicity as well. This classic film features a Rodgers-Hart score.

Featured Songs:

  • “”Down by the River”
  • “Soon”
  • “Easy To Remember But So Hard to Forget”
