Finians Rainbow(1954)

Recommended Posts


There was an animated cartoon planned for this great musical.Frank Sinatra,Ella Logan,Ella Fitzgerald,Louis Armstrong,Barry Fitzgerald,and Jim Bacus.



The project got started in 1954.Scoring and recording were finished.Then when it came to do the animation distaster showed its ugly head.The money was all gone and the film was never finished.



Frank played Woody and his songs were Old Devil Moon,That Great Come And Get It Day,Ad Lib Blues,If This Isnt Love,Necessity,and a brief version of How Are Things In Glocco Mora.(All are on the Sinatra set,Sinatra In Hollywood)What happened to the other songs by the other artists?Who can say.



The 1968 version with Fred Astaire,Petula Clark,and Tommy Steele was a letdown.
