Songs That Mention Movie Stars

Recommended Posts

In the movie "Annie", there is a scene where Daddy Warbucks and Grace take Annie to Radio City to see "Camille" Of course, they have the whole theater to themselves as the chorus and ushers join them in "Let's Go To The Movies". The song mentions Bette Davis, Greta Garbo, Robert Taylor, Chico, Groucho, Chaplin, Lloyd, Mickey Mouse, Shirley Temple, Jackie Cooper, and Fred and Ginger.
