    A Mixed Bag

    Bing Crosby has starred in some of my favorite, and least favorite, movies. Appearing in over 100 motion pictures, he was one of the most popular performers of his time. This collection showcases five of his lesser known efforts. While none of them are as excellent as his classics "White Christmas" or "Going My Way", most of them can be enjoyed for what they are – lively low budget musicals. The best in the set are both included on the second disc. Also featuring child star Gloria Jean, “If I Had My Way” has godfather Crosby attempting to provide for the orphaned girl of his best friend. My personal favorite of the set, “East Side of Heaven” is a hilarious comedy about two bachelors who get stuck with a baby when the mother skips town during a custody battle for the child. I found that the others, while pleasant, were fairly forgettable. Of course Crosby’s easy going persona and rich baritone are winning in every film he appears in. Unfortunately, there are no special features. All in all, I’d say that this is set of early Bing Crosby movies that never became classics.
