KAY KYSER and ANN MILLER
Kay Kyser and Ann Miller inscribe sheet music for "There Goes That Song Again".
Sheet Music signed: "Good Luck Always -/Ann Miller" and "Best wishes to Michael & Norman/from Kay Kyser - 10-21-83" on cover, 4 p, 9x12. Sheet music to the song "There Goes That Song Again", words by Sammy Cahn, music by Jule Styne, featured in the 1944 Columbia film, Carolina Blues. In the film, a follow up to Kyser's 1943 RKO film, Around the World, and the final film in which Kyser starred, Kyser was cast as himself and Miller played Julie Carver, who replaces Kyser's vocalist, Georgia Carroll, who is leaving the band to get married. Ironically, Carroll did leave show business to get married -- to Kay Kyser. Bandleader KAY KYSER (1906-1985), who couldn't read a note of music, was one of the most popular bandleaders and music personalities in America from 1933 until the end of the 1940s. Kyser and his band became nationally known following a series of radio broadcasts from the Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. These shows, which featured his trademark comedy (vocalists singing the titles of songs, interrupting a chorus for the band's theme, "Thinking of You") and an engagement at the Blackhawk Restaurant in Chicago, Kyser a star. His many hits included "The White Cliffs of Dover" and "Old Buttermilk Sky". Kyser's zany radio show, Kay Kyser's Kollege of Musical Knowledge, ran for more than 15 years and was so popular that RKO signed him up for a series of films, starting with That's Right, You're Wrong. During WWII, Kyser and his band appeared at over 500 military installations in USO shows. After his radio show was cancelled in1949, Kyser had difficulty making a transition to television, and he retired in 1950. Dancer/actress ANN MILLER (1923-2003), born Lucille Ann Collier, lit up M-G-M musicals, including Easter Parade (1948), On The Town (1949) and Kiss Me Kate (1953), with her acting and dancing (setting a world record for taps-per-minute in one of her films). Miller, who debuted on Broadway in George White Scandals (1939), later starred in Mame (1966-1970) and made a triumphant return to the Great White Way 40 years after her debut, receiving a 1980 Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical for Sugar Babies (1979-1982). Both covers creased and scuffed, chipped at upper blank edge. Pages slightly soiled. Overall, fine condition.
