|Plot||:||+ The Lux Radio Theatre. June 15, 1936. "Burlesque". Sponsored by: Lux. A well-done story of backstage love and heartbreak. Eighty-five year old Daniel Frohman (a famous theatrical producer) is interviewed. Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler are interviewed after the story. Jolson sings "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody," "Is It True What They Say About Dixie?" and "Toot, Toot Tootsie." The same script was used again on The Lux Radio Theatre on February 26, 1940 (as "Swing High, Swing Low,"and on April 25, 1949 (as "When My Baby Smiles At Me,". + Backstage at the Burlesque show, playing at a small town in the Mid-West. It is a few minutes after the opening and Lefty Moore, the stage manager is standing in the wings, hurrying the chorus girls onto the stage. With the same familiarity that J and K follow each other alphabetically speaking, Jolson and Keeler follow the old routines that were so popular in the thirties musical films. Successful burlesque comedian and singer gets a great chance to make it big in New York but has to leave the love of his life behind in a small town show. Ruby Keeler as Bonny Smith gets the opportunity to marry a rich rancher, whilst Jolson as Skid Brown turns from success to drink…..But I guess you ought to listen to find out what happens.|
