Soundie: My Reverie

Picture of Larry Clinton

Today's Soundie features Larry Clinton and His Orchestra along with Peggy Mann on vocals performing "My Reverie". This was originally filmed in 1941 and by the time of it's release to Panoram movie-jukeboxes in October of 1943, Clinton's Orchestra had disbanded.

The production itself is pretty straight forward and basic, but it seems to work well with this Soundie. I really enjoy the job that Peggy Mann does with the vocals.  The original version of this Clinton classic from 1938 featured Bea Wain as the female lead, but Mann does a fantastic job.  She's also featured in two other Larry Clinton Soundies: "Deep Purple" and "The Night We Met in Honomu".
