Never heard this one before, its from a Broadway musical circa. 1958.
Thank you for that! Nothing quite like Broadway anywhere else in the world. And with no less than Phil Silvers.
That is marvelous. How did we miss that all these years?
Fromthemusical "High Button Shoes", circ 1946. That's actually Phil Silvers, aka Sgt. Bilko, singing.
IMO forgettable songs in aforgettable show. That's why is a little obscure.
Phil always did enjoy Ford's
Phil Silvers is one of hundreds of underappreciated stars from that golden era. Mostly he was a live stage performer, and well known in his day. Often a guest shot in sitcoms and variety shows on TV, and a few forgettable major roles. To really appreciate many of these stars, you need to see them on live talk shows where they get away from their scripts.
If you have lots of time to spare, some of these interviews can be found on U-tube now. I have never looked for Phil Silvers there, so don't know what may be available. But I remember him from original airings a lo-ong time ago.
