Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby Jr. (; May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977) was an American singer, comedian and actor. The first multimedia star, Crosby was a leader in record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses from 1931 to 1954. His early career coincided with recording innovations that allowed him to develop an intimate singing style that influenced many male singers who followed him, including Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes, and Dean Martin. Yank magazine said that he was "the person who had done the most for the morale of overseas servicemen" during World War II. In 1948, American polls declared him the "most admired man alive", ahead of Jackie Robinson and Pope Pius XII. Also in 1948, Music Digest estimated that his recordings filled more than half of the 80,000 weekly hours allocated to recorded radio music.

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?

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.

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.

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.
