History Buffs - Johnny Mercer (Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Irving Berlin)

Celina from the C Monkeys and the UCSC, shared this fascinating link with me. I love old black & white movies and the famous actors and actresses in them. Yes, there's a sense of nostalgia, a slower pace, less blood, more emotional suspense. I am currently reading a biography of Irving Berlin. Here's a bit of history on Johnny Mercer by Robert Fulford.

Thanks Celina

P.S. found this photo on a very interesting blog...
