You know, Marilyn, I never was much of a Peggy Lee fan.  Benny Goodman?  You bet.  The "Frankie and Johnny" I remember Kenny Rogers singing was in a New Years Eve special on TV, not in a movie.  Strange, when I was a kid, I, along with neighbor kids, went to the movies every Saturday.  Now, I can't be bothered, even to watch an old favorite on TV.  Too old too soon!

Mary Ann,  we had a small movie theater in our hometown. On Saturdays it had morning matinees for kids.  It cost 10 cents for my sister and myself and later when our baby sister was old enough, 10 cents for her.  We shared a box of popcorn and after the movies we went next door to a pharmacy where we could get a huge one scoop ice cream cone for a nickel.  The worst day I had at the Saturday movies was when we went to see Pinocchio and my baby sister cried so loud the usher made me take her outside (Pinocchio was lost in the sea or already in the whale) and we had to wait until the movie concluded and the middle sister came back outside.  Not a fun day for me!

Sue, we had a drug store near the theater where we could get ice cream but I don't recall stopping on the way home from the movie.  I do remember sitting at the counter and having a soda and going to the candy counter to buy something for a nickel.  That former drug store is now a medical supply place and is a nice addition to our end of town.  I don't go there because my meds come by mail, and I've been fortunate to not need other supplies.

Sometimes, it would be better if things were as they used to be!  We've said so often that kids today don't know what they're missing.

Jackie, I did not see Bambi, so shed no tears.

I remember watching Bambi, too.   And I did cry!  I've always had a tender heart for animals and even humans who suffer losses.  I still tear up when I'm reading a novel with sad scenes.

Anne and I had to pay 10 cents each for the Saturday a.m. matinee--with pre film favorites such as Buck Rogers and others of that genre.  The movies tended to be Disney specials.  We did that until I was about 12 and sometimes after that when one of us had to take our baby sister Linda to the Saturday matinee.  Linda could really weep buckets (and loudly, too).  That's why I was put out on the curb to wait with Linda until the Pinocchio film was over.  Anne stayed for the entire film.

Thank you, Ferocious.  This rendition brought tears to my eyes.  My late husband and I loved Nat "King" Cole and danced to lots of his ballads.  He had the smoothest voice and his daughter Natalie, certainly has some of his fantastic talent.

Brought tears to my eyes, too  He was one of a kind.  Haven't been here for a while.  Caught up on some great music.  It is so sad that you don't hear this kind of music anymore.  Most of what you hear now,  you can even understand what they are saying.   

I guess Michael Buble is the closes now to this kind of music.   I really like him.

Ferocious,   That duet by Nat Cole and daughter is so beautiful.   When it first came out it was hard to believe how it was done so well.   As some one said here it does bring tears.   So many memories with these lovely oldies.    I have a few artists on my Pandora that do great renditions of many of the '40s melodies that we loved.   Beegie Adair is one of them.   She plays piano and has a good saxaphone player as well.

That would be Denis Solee ------ One of my favorites.  Have several of his CDs.
The Beegie group is fairly popular around here.

Check out https://www.beegieadair.com/    Good listening.

Rammel,  Thanks for naming the Sax player.  :thumbup:   I couldn't say it at the time.    He is good!  I just sort of stumbled upon Beegie.   I hadn't heard of her before but Al always had Easy Listening on TV  and when I heard her piano,  I started to pay attention to the name of the artist.    Another one I found there is Andre Gagnon.   His rendition of Twilight Time is especially nice.

My son is a big jazz fan and we live just north of NYC so he often visits Jazz Clubs in the City.  He also goes to a club north of here in Tarrytown - easier to get to.  So, I get all the good scoop on good jazz.

Lucky you! :)   Out here on the "Western NY Frontier" we have to depend on radio or Internet to make those kind of discoveries.  Youtube is great for this.    I listen to a Canadian radio station from Toronto that has pretty good  smooth jazz.  It is better on the car radio than in the house and the sound system in the car is really a lot better as well.

I was a big fan of Nat "King" Cole.  If I remember correctly, he was born/lived in Montgomery, Alabama until he broke into the big time.  His voice was simply beautiful on those ballads he was famous for.

Sue

P.S.  Another favorite of a different genre was Fats Domino.  Wasn't he the one who sang "Blueberry Thrill"?  Or was it "Blueberry Hill"?  My husband and I had just started dating when that was popular and I think we danced to that for weeks!
