Jimmy Durante Show: Volume 2

Various

Big-nosed, brash, and boisterous, beloved entertainer Jimmy Durante parlayed a career in vaudeville, nightclubs, and Broadway shows into a radio career highlighted by many successful programs throughout the 1930s and 1940s. After spending the war years paired with crewcutted comic Garry moore, the Great Schnozzola went solo in 1947 in an hilarious series for Rexall Drugs that also featured Arthur Treacher as his sarcastic British butler, multi-voiced charater comedians Candy Candido and Elvia Allman, musical numbers by Peggy Lee, and a raft of well-known guest stars. The twelve shows in this collection showcase Durante at his bigger than life best, complete with the fractured English, gravel voiced musical numbers, and warmhearted buffoonery that made him a show business legend.
