100 Years of Frank Sinatra: "Till the Clouds Roll By"

Till the Clouds Roll By opened at Radio City Music Hall on December 5, 1946.   The MGM musical biography tells the story of American composer Jerome Kern, best known for the musical "Showboat".   The movie earned nearly $5,000,000 at the box office, enough to place it in the top 10 releases of 1946.

Kern died in 1945 at the age of 60.  

Sinatra appears as himself in the movie, crooning a version of "Ol' Man River".

Around this time, Mom and Dad eagerly anticipated moving into the new Messiah Lutheran Church parsonage.
