BING CROSBY: Say, fellas, what did you think of the show?
ME: Wow, what a wonderful entertainment! Why, in that first half hour alone you sing that charming ode to laziness, Fred Astaire dances drunk, everything is so fun and witty.
BING CROSBY: Thought the people seemed to like the blackface routine.
ME: Um... you know what was really great? All of Astaire's inventive novelty routines. The dance with the firecrackers, or when you intentionally mess up his and Marjorie Reynolds' tempo in the Washington number.
BING CROSBY: Don't you think a blackface routine on St. Valentine's Day'd be novel?
ME: Like I was saying, this sure worked like gangbusters. Boy howdy. They sure don't make them like they used to. No sir! I have to go now. Goodbye!
