Trivia for the other 98% of us

Recommended Posts

Azure, your photo reminded me of the Barkleys of Broadway - -


The only time you ever see Lena Horne's husband in a movie is the Barkleys of Broadway. Because he was the premiere musical conductor at MGM, he's seen conducting the orchestra for Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Can somebody name him?


Since this is supposed to be easy - - his name is probably even in the credits.

Yes, Lennie was Lena Horne's husband and MGM's top conductor and arranger. Lennie was responsible for one of their greatest films, Gene Kelly's

singing in the rain.


Gene Kelly and Lennie were able to work one last time on Barbra Streisand's Hello Dolly in 1969.


Azure, next time I'll try to be brief and not so demonstratif. LOL


Azure is up--

Thanks, Princess. 



Next:  Let's stick with The Barkleys of Broadway.  Ginger Rogers was brought in to replace the lead actress in this film.  Who was the original choice for role of Dinah Barkley?
