Bobby Breen, "the most alarming vocal phenomenon of the day"


Sorry, folks, but I couldn't watch all 4 minutes and 5 seconds of this clip.



Bobby Breen, a Child Star Who Hit a High Note in the 1930s, Dies at 87.  (The New York Times, 9/24/2016)
Meteoric, in other words. He was Bobby Breen, and in a torrid run of seven more films over the next three years, he melted maternal hearts and emerged as a major star, in the same league as Mickey Rooney, Jane Withers and Freddie Bartholomew, earning $50,000 a year — a huge sum then — from testimonials alone.
Admit it, you never heard of him, even if the New York Times memorialized him, after all these years, with a 1062-word obituary.  (I'm just looking for some company here.)

"All the News That's Fit to Print."

And that's why I've been a subscriber for 30-some years.  And before I subscribed, I purchased a copy each day, whenever possible, going back to the early 1970s

At the Republican National Convention, Trump showed off an impressive family even though there was that plagiarism furor over wife Melania's speech.
