Bing Crosby: Harry Lillis Crosby, born in Washington, United States. was renamed in 1910. The six-year-old Harry Lillis found a feature in the Spokesman-Review. It was entitled The Bingville Bugle, written by humorist Newton Newkirk, and parodied a hillbilly newsletter. A neighbour, 15-year-old Valentine Hobart, noted Crosby's amusement and named him from one character, "Bingo from Bingville." It's not because of any supposed similarity with big-eared Bingo, as is sometimes suggested. Nickname: The Old Groaner.
Bing Crosby, byname of Harry Lillis Crosby, (born May 3, 1903, Tacoma, Washington, U.S.—died October 14, 1977, near Madrid, Spain), American singer, actor, and songwriter who achieved great popularity in radio, recordings, and motion pictures. He became the archetypal crooner of a period when the advent of radio broadcasting and talking pictures and the refinement of sound-recording techniques made the climate ideal for the rise of such a figure. His casual stage manner and mellow, relaxed singing style influenced two generations of pop singers and made him the most successful entertainer of his day.
Bing Crosby acquired the nickname Bing when in elementary school, either from a prank on a teacher or from a love for the comic strip The Bingville Bugle. He came from a musical family and began to sing and to play the drums while studying law at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. After a period spent singing with the Paul Whiteman orchestra in 1927, he appeared in the early sound film King of Jazz (1931). Bing Crosby became a star after getting his own program on the CBS radio station in New York City in 1932. He began appearing in more films, and by the late 1930s his records were selling millions of copies. His songwriting activities included part-authorship of "A Ghost of a Chance" and "Where the Blue of the Night" (his radio theme song). In the 1940s he was the star of a popular radio variety show.
During this time, Bing Crosby became a bankable actor. He starred with Fred Astaire in the box-office hit Holiday Inn (1942), and in that musical Bing Crosby first sang "White Christmas." His recording of the Irving Berlin ballad became one of the most popular songs of the century, exceeded in record sales only by his "Silent Night." Bing Crosby then won an Academy Award for best actor for his portrayal of Father O'Malley in the film Going My Way (1944). He reprised the role in The Bells of St. Mary's (1945), for which he received another Oscar nomination.
Bing Crosby's career took a turn to comedy in the series of seven "Road" films in which he appeared with Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour, beginning with Road to Singapore (1940). Perhaps the best known in the series was Road to Morocco (1942), which was widely regarded as a classic. His other films included White Christmas and The Country Girl (both 1954); for the latter, Bing Crosby received his third and final Academy Award nomination. He continued to act into the 1970s, many of his later appearances being on television. His last credited role was in the TV movie Dr. Cook's Garden (1971).
Bing Crosby ran a successful television production company in the 1960s. An astute businessman, he amassed one of the largest fortunes in Hollywood from his earnings as an entertainer and from shrewd investments. By the mid-1970s, 400 million copies of his records had been sold. He was a notable sportsman and died of a heart attack while on a golf course. His autobiography, Call Me Lucky, appeared in 1953.
