Cocoanut Grove Ambassadors, Volume 1, Hörbuch, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When those who celebrate the Golden Age of Hollywood reflect back on the halcyon days of the early 1930s, one particular nightspot comes immediately to mind: the Cocoanut Grove at Los Angeles´ Ambassador Hotel. This lavishly appointed club, part of the massive 23-acre Ambassador resort that also included four restaurants, a bowling alley, a billiard room, and even a movie theater, was decorated in Moroccan style and featured full-size palm trees reportedly salvaged from Rudolph Valentino´s The Sheik. In addition to the decor, which also offered a night sky filled with stars (thanks to about 1,000 small lightbulbs), an elevated stage, and both dining and dancing room for several hundred patrons, customers came for the smooth musical entertainment provided by a series of dance orchestras and their popular vocalists - many of whom would later go on to star careers in radio, recordings, and the film industry. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gus Arnheim, Jimmie Grier, Phil Harris, Ted Fio Rito. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/drms/001387/bk_drms_001387_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Before Johnny Dollar came along, radio favorite Bob Bailey starred in an offbeat private-eye series entitled Let George Do It. As played by Bailey, George Valentine was an ex-cop turned private investigator who eschewed muscle in favor of manual dexterity and analytical thinking skills. His friendly nemeses on the police force included Lieutenant Riley (Wally Maher) and Lieutenant Johnson (Ken Christy), and he depended on his gal Friday, Claire Brooks (Brooksie), played first by Frances Robinson and later by Virginia Gregg. The 20 episodes in this collection, restored by Radio Archives, give you the chance to really hear volume 2 of Let George Do It. Chapters: #1 The Marauder; #2 The High Price of a Penny; #3 Tune on a Triangle; #4 Red Spots in the Snow; #5 Nothing but the Truth; #6 High Card; #7 Angel´s Grotto; #8 The Hand in the Cocoanut; #9 The Sedan from the City; # 10 Tag, You´re It; #11 The White Elephant; #12 Deal Me Out and I´ll Deal You In; #13 The Blue Plate Special; #14 The Noose Hangs High; #15 The House That Jack Built; #16 It´s a Mystery to Me; #17 And Hope to Die; #18 The Treasure of Millie´s Wharf ; #19 Is Everybody Happy?; #20 See Me Once, You´ve Seen Me Twice. 1.

The Animated Marx Brothers , Hörbuch, Digital, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

To many people, the Marx Brothers always seemed cartoonish. Small wonder that film animators plucked their personas from their first appearances in The Cocoanuts (1929) and Animal Crackers (1930) and caricatured them in countless animated appearances in theatrical cartoons. Their animated likenesses have since been wisecracking in television cartoons, direct-to-video movies, fan films, commercials, flip books, avatars, emoji, a slot machine, and two TV pilots so rare they were once thought not to exist. At last, Marx Brothers fans can rejoice. Matthew Hahn´s search for every animated appearance of a Marx brother has trailed longer than Groucho´s coattails. His discoveries include the backstories of the studios, moviemakers and stars, rare test drawings from the Smithsonian Institution National Portrait Gallery, abandoned projects, connections, coincidences, and apocrypha. Through the reels of Silly Symphonies, Looney Tunes, and Merrie Melodies, to their comic clashes with Heckle & Jeckle, Oswald Rabbit, Krazy Kat, Pooch the Pup, Buddy, Cubby, Willie Whopper, Flip the Frog, and Popeye, journey back through the most detailed analyses ever compiled of animated Marx Brothers appearances. The author also draws from appearances in You Bet Your Life (1950), Quick Draw McGraw (1959), The Simpsons (1989), Tiny Toon Adventures (1990), and Animaniacs (1993), among many others. 1.
