VTT - 1932 BOOK + MOVIE: CROONER
Thank you, Suzanne, for hosting our weekly vintage party!
I love older books, pre-1960 to be more specific. Not only do they have cool covers and graphics, they usually read much better than modern books, in my humble opinion. They're more wholesome and entertaining. I picked up this one at a thrift store; it's from 1932. Can you guess what it's about?
In case you couldn't figure it out, this will tell you. I enjoyed it very much!
Do you recall (or remember!) the original famous crooner, Rudy Vallee? Here's a snapshot of him.
While doing a Google search on the book, I found out they made a movie of it the same year. Here are a few snaps from the TCM trailer. (That's Turner Classic Movies)
Cool graphics, huh?
