I was a Tony little girl on the Bing Crosby show in the 1960. Does anyone know where I could get copies of those Tony ads?

alvis64Oct 13, 2012

he was a giant talent in entertainment...but apparently not so great in the father department...sad...

JBellaSep 2, 2011

I have a singing statue of this guy and it is hilarious.

There was a short whirlwind love affair/engagement to Ruth Buchanan of Spokane, Washington. This was probably in the the 1930's or thereabout.

Daisy PresbyDec 20, 2010

Mr Crosby was a Horrible Father to the Son`s that he had with Dixie Lee. Those Poor Boy`s went through Hell !!

LITTLE KOJAKJun 17, 2010

One of my favorite movies of all time is `Little Boy Lost` 1953. It was so touching and I must give credit to Bing for his very convincing and moving performance.

AARONSep 12, 2008

I HAD READ THAT BING WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST "PLAYAS" EVER. YOUR SITE CONCURS... BING WAS THE MAN...

JohnApr 1, 2008

Bing is the greatest entertainer of all time. When you consider his versatility - singing in a variety of genres, there is no one who comes even close to him. For example, can you imagine any other crooner who could sing country and western like he could. No way! And nobody, repeat, NOBODY, could sing the American popular standard like him, and nobody could put across the sense of loss and absence the way he did. Listen to Since You Went Away and When Day is Done, as examples. And he sang with other performers like no one else could. I could go on and on, but let`s end it here.

nelkane bentonMar 14, 2008

Bing Crosby was not only the greatest singer, his acting was faboulous. No one was more charming.Also he could make you cry , watch him in Country Girl.

mfan0825Nov 1, 2007

Bing is THE greatest singer EVER!!!! His voice is incredible beyond believe. He has the most incredible, most soothing voice EVER!!! I could listen to him sing all night and day. And he is one of the rare few singers who can act. I love him dearly. Rest in peace Mr. Crosby!!!
