Gentlemen Marry Brunettes - Johnny Desmond


Ain't Misbehavin'

Jane Russell & Jeanne Crain
In Anita Loos'
Gentlemen Marry Brunettes
Starring Alan Young, Scott Brady & Rudy Vallee
Johnny Desmond sings "Gentlemen Marry Brunettes (note: Johnny Desmond does not appear in the film)
Coral Records CRL 57013

From Billboard - October 1, 1955: With the exception of one vocal by Johnny Desmond (on the title song "Gentlemen Marry Brunettes") this LP is actually a sound track album from the new Jane Russell - Jeanne Crain movie of the same title. As such, of course, it offers dealers extensive opportunities for tie-ups with local movie houses and considerable display potential. The label is somewhat ambiguous as to credits but, in general, Vallee, Miss Russell, Robert Farnon (dubbing for Scott Brady) and Anita Ellis (dubbing for Miss Crain) warble together and separately on a group of oldies from the mad 'twenties and early thirties, including, "You're Driving Me Crazy," "My Funny Valentine," "Daddy," "Ain't Misbehavin'," and "I Wanna Be Loved By You." Strong nostalgic package for middle-aged customers, and good same-draw for teen-age movie fans.
