(I’ve Got A Gal In) Kalamazoo

George in Richmond

Tex, Marion and the Modernaires …. ’nuff said! Looks and sounds great in “Orchestra Wives”

Actually, Tex and the gang do well singing Chatanooga Choo Choo in “Sun Valley Serenade” but Dorothy Dandridge and the Nicholas Brothers knock it out of the park.

Chuck, you must be a dyed-in-the-wool Miller fan.
