He died of a heart attack on a golf course in Spain
Yes he is he died of a heart attack.
I'm no Bing Crosby expert, but I've never read anything that would lead me to believe he was racist. Especially in context of the day and age in which he lived, when views on …many issues were quite different than they are now. I assume you raise the question because he performed in blackface on a few occasions. There is a clip of one instance here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAHSTbD4A5M along with some interesting commentary below. Some assert that Bing, like Frank Sinatra, stood up for his fellow musicians who were black. Others discuss the history the of minstrel show and blackface tradition, which they claim was actually, in some ways, a positive force for race relations. That is hard to grasp for most of us today, but I found the discussion interesting as I knew little of the tradition, which was gone by the time I was born. In any case, Bing would probably be pleasantly surprised to learn we have an African-American president. America is supposed to be about progress, and doubtless by the time you and I are very old and gray, many things will have come to pass which we would not have dreamed. --- Bing Crosby was definitely not a racist. He produced albums with Ella Fitzgerald ("Christmas Jump & Live" to name just one of them). The big band/swing artists of that era seemed to not care about race as much as their parent's generation. Take the Rat Pack for example. Sinatra and Dean Martin would not be the rack pack without Sammy Davis, Jr., a black man. Besides, Bing Crosby was a jazz singer. Jazz is a black tradition. He's in black territory--so he better not be racist. It'd be like a white racist from Georgia wanting to live in Harlem. Doesn't happen. Crosby was not a racist. (Neither of the two men with that name were racists.)
He died October 14, 1977. He was 74.
Yes. He won an Oscar as Best Actor for his portrayal of Father O'Malley in Going My Way (1944).
When he was a small child he liked a publication called The Bingville Bugle. A neighbor girl who shared his enthusiasm for the publication liked him started calling him "Bingo… from Bingville". This later became Bing.
Not quite. In his will, Bing stated that his children would not receive any part of their inheritance till they turned 65.
Bing Crosby was born on May 3, 1903 and died on October 14, 1977. Bing Crosby would have been 74 years old at the time of death or 112 years old today.
There are a number of copies of this set currently for sale in Ebay Stores, price ranging from 15 to 20 dollars. It is neither rare nor monetarily valuable. Sorry. …Sadly, there are very few serious collectors, and it is unlikely you could find anyone but an impulse buyer. The best option is to save it as a keepsake, pass it down through the family. In the late 1940s it was thoroughly enjoyed and quite entertaining to whomever owned it. In the 1930s and 1940s Bing had a string of top hits, including 3 songs that each stayed at #1 for more than 10 weeks. Nobody else has ever done that. In short, you own a small piece of Americana, from a postwar time of peace and prosperity. That's the real value of the set.
Three of his children have stated VERY publicly that Bing was a physically and emotionally abusive father, one admits to the use of corporal punishment but denies it was abusi…ve. Hard to say: some people exaggerate their stories in order to get publicity, and some abuse victims deny their victimhood. You can take your pick.
Some where around $80mm but after the family paid estate taxes there was very little left. Lots of land holdings but little cash.
im sure its White beater, but i still say wife beater, i got a strong Jersey accent so when i say it , it sounds like wife beater
because they beat there wife and i don't mean like they beat there wife at a sport or something i mean he got mad and hit her or something.
No. Bing Crosby died in 1977 on a golf course in France.
