Overview

This book is a tribute to the talent of Clifton A. Edwards, the man who introduced the world to the ukulele, and whose career as a song writer spanned more than 60 years. He skyrocketed to national popularity when he appeared in the George Gershwin musical Lady be Good, became a well-known vaudeville entertainer and Hollywood star, and was largely responsible for the voice, character, and image of Jiminy Cricket, the famous cricket of the popular Disney color cartoon classic, Pinocchio. Larry F. Kiner has brought together in one volume a discography of the songs recorded by Cliff Edwards, a complete listing of songs written by him, a chronology of stage shows in which he appeared, a filmography, notes on his radio and television careers, and appendixes that provide 78 RPM records by label and catalog number, library transcriptions, and films on video tape.
