Bing Crosby: The Special Years
7:00 PM PT
Ring in the holiday season as we celebrate the iconic life and career of Bing Crosby with a special screening and panel event featuring the world premiere of the new documentary, Down Argentine Way: Bing Crosby in Buenos Aires, a fascinating chronicle of Crosby’s 1970 trip to South America featuring archival concert footage never before seen in the United States and all new interviews with Kathryn Crosby and others. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with members of Crosby’s family; his costar from the classic musical Anything Goes, legendary entertainer Mitzi Gaynor; acclaimed Disney composer Richard M. Sherman (Mary Poppins); and others. The program will also be interspersed with classic clips from Crosby’s television specials featuring Mitzi, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, David Bowie, Carol Burnett, Dean Martin, and more. We couldn’t leave out Bing’s holiday specials, so there’ll be merry moments from those as well, plus join us for a holiday dessert reception following the show.
