Product Details

On a trip down South, millionaire radio sponsor G. William Williams finds a country mechanic, Whitey Morgan, who can sing better than half of the stars on Broadway. Williams and his beautiful daughter Joan bring Whitey to Manhattan intent on making him the next big singing sensation on their weekly radio program. When romantic sparks fly between Joan and Whitey, a jealous suitor plots to fix him so that he'll never sing again. Sing While You're Able showcases radio star Pinky Tomlin. As a student at the University of Oklahoma he wrote the composition "The Object Of My Affection" for his girlfriend, and the tune became a national hit. Tomlin went on to a busy career as a singer, songwriter, band leader and starred in a handful of modestly budgeted but successful motion pictures. Movie sex siren Toby Wing was as well known for her high-profile romances with Jackie Coogan, Maurice Chevalier and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr.. Wing and costar Pinky Tomlin were engaged in 1937, the year this production was released. Although they never married, they remained life-long friends.
