July 7, 2005 - Sweet Georgia Brown in Polish [Ann Bancroft]

Actress Ann Bancroft passed away today. In her, and her husband, Mel Brook's 1984 remake of the film To Be Or Not To Be, they play a husband and wife theatrical team performing in Warsaw - the Bronskys. Jack Benny and Carol Lombard made the original movie in 1942 without the number.
The film opens with the two of them doing a stunning, on stage, song and dance rendition, of the very American number, Sweet Gerogia Brown. What made it such a hit with American audiences, was that they did the song in perfect Polish.
To the Polish-American community, Ann Bancroft should be remembered for that performance, alone.
If you haven't seen it, don't miss it. Check you local public library.
