Worth 1,000 Words UPDATE: CROSBY, SCOTT, DENNIS, BUSHKIN



THE MYSTERY TO THE POST BELOW [please scroll down] IS SOLVED! Prolific author RICHARD GRUDENS (When Jolson Was King, Bing Crosby: Crooner of the Century, The Music Men, and many more) identifies the two mystery men as (far left) MATT DENNIS and (far right) JOE BUSHKIN.


MATT DENNIS (Feb. 11, 1914-June 21, 2002) was a singer, pianist, bandleader and composer. One of his compositions was Angel Eyes. Dick Haymes sang with his band.


JOE BUSHKIN (Nov. 7, 1916-Nov. 3, 2004), a jazz pianist, accompanied many singers, and toured with Bing Crosby during the 1960's. He co-wrote Oh! Look at Me Now, an early Frank Sinatra hit. He arranged and played for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.

I am leaving the posting below as it was to portray the identity crisis that occurred in the search for truth. Truth now prevails. Thanks, Richard, and all who contributed their thoughts.
