More Chic Chocolate from the Marco Pacci collection. The vocalist is Charles Sheppard. This tune first appeared in the film Song of the Open Road, made in 1944.
Here’s what the New York Times said about the film: “A beautiful child (14-year-old Jane Powell in her feature film debut) star tires of life in the spotlight and so disguises herself and sneaks off to join a Civilian Conservation Corps camp to work with normal kids. It doesn’t take her long to discover that being “normal” isn’t easy as it looks. When a crop is in danger of being ruined because there are not enough people to harvest it, the girl employs some of her famous colleagues to lend a hand. Cameo appearances include W.C. Fields, Charley McCarthy and Edgar Bergen and the dancing Condos Brothers.”
