Monday Serenade: Young Bing Crosby

Here’s a very young, but polished Bing Crosby making his film debut in Reaching for the Moon (1930). He sings When the Folks High-up Do the Mean Low-down with Bebe Daniels and June MacCloy in the midst of a wild party scene. Despite this clip, the movie isn’t a musical, but a romantic comedy starring Douglas Fairbanks in one of his few talkies. The movie creaks a bit, but it’s got gorgeous art deco sets and some amusing acrobatic outbursts from Fairbanks.
