Strangers in the Night

In memoriam, Katherine Grayson and Frank Sinatra in 1947’s It Happened In Brooklyn, singing “Là ci darem la mano” from Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Make fun of it all you want, I still think this is forty kinds of awesome. The pianist is André Previn; somewhere out there is an alternate take with Previn and longtime MGM stalwart Johnny Green manning two pianos, just to further mess with the purists.
