Would love to see this version
Rosie trying to reply to movies where someone plays themselves in a movie.
#21 The movie is "The Pride of the Yankees" starring Gary Cooper as Lou Gehrig. Babe Ruth plays himself. I remember seeing him in the scene with where Gehrig gives his farewell speech at Yankee Stadium. Cooper is pictured at the microphone in front of a line Yankee players. Babe Ruth was one of them.
I didn't remember that detail. Good one!
22. Stormy Weather - This amazing showcase of musical and dance talent features quite a few famous people NOT playing themselves, but among those who do play themselves are Fats Waller and Cab Calloway. Here are my two favorite performances in the movie:
24. It's in the Bag - Fred Allen stars in this comedy about a fortune concealed in a set of inherited chairs. Also appearing are Don Ameche, Robert Benchley, William Bendix, Binnie Barnes, Jerry Colonna, Victor Moore, Rudy Vallee, and Jack Benny as himself. You can see him at about 50 seconds into the trailer below.
If you knew the movie's name and those other details, that's good enough for me.
Gem Data, that's a good one. I don't want to discourage you from posting by any means, but we have a rule of not posting twice in a row. I will number my next entry #26, yours will then be #27, and then I will try to come up with a #28 so that it's clear to everyone what number we're on.
26. Head - The Monkees star in this psychedelic adventure featuring themselves. (Gem Data reminded me of this.)
