I recognized Bert Lahr doing the intro to the song, but was the tall guy Red
Skelton?  Sure looked like him, but I'd never seen him in anthing this
early...just his TV days in the '50's.

Thanks for the tip, Bill.

Dear mates,
Watch for Tommy Dorsey in the intro, listen for Ziggy Elman and Heinie  
Beau in the band backing and marvel at Ms Powell and Buddy Rich,  
particularly right at the end.
Don't mention the name of the film or the video police will pull this  
great clip.
Kind regards,
