Frances Langford, R.I.P.


Actress/singer Frances Langford dies: "MIAMI — Frances Langford, whose steamy rendition of 'I'm in the Mood for Love'' captivated soldiers when she was part of Bob Hope's USO tours during World War II, died Monday at the age of 92. Langford had been ill with congestive heart failure and died at her home in Jensen Beach, said her lawyer, Evans Crary Jr."

OK, even I have to admit that all the obits lately are getting a little creepy, but Frances Langford's name means something to an Old Guy like me. I heard her on the radio when I was a kid, often with Bob Hope. And of course I remember her as half of THE BICKERSONS with Don Ameche. Another great voice gone.

Babe-o-rama. Many radio and a few movie memories of her. Ed Gorman
