LILAC TIME Glass Slides

PostTue Feb 08, 2011 8:01 pm

I recently acquired some mint-conditioned glass slides promoting the Colleen Moore-Gary Cooper film, LILAC TIME (1928) and its charming theme song. I have two more enroute that I hope are the first part of the song. These represent the last verse.

Might be nice to add on one of the recordings from Youtube, either Gene Austin or John McCormick.

Bob,

Gean Austin is great. I have not heard the John McCormack one. Anyway, I thought that was Colleen's Hubby? :lol:

Try this outstanding instrumental version on TCM CFU. Performed by a genuine Movie Palace-Tango Orchestra. You may need to click on the play button a couple times to get it to run. I thought I had this up before, but I must have been mistaken.

John McCormack (1884-1945) was the famous Irish tenor and married Lily Foley in 1906.

John McCormick (1893-1961) was the Hollywood producer married to Colleen.

Here's the former's rendition of "Jeannine", recorded for Victor on 19 November 1928:

Harold,

:o I know that I was just Joking. John McCormick was also an All American Offensive lineman at Nebraska back in the mid 80s' Thanks for the link!

Hey, I like these versions here quite a bit.
