Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Eddie Cantor Sings '"By the Light of the Silvery Moon" in 1931

It's another Throwback Thursday and we're turning the clock back 89 years to 1931 when Eddie Cantor was featured in the Max Fleischer's Screen Songs for By The Light Of The Silvery Moon, My Baby Just Cares For Me and Show Me The Way To Go Home. 

Cantor, born Isidore Itzkowitz (1892–1964) was an American "illustrated song" performer, comedian, dancer, singer, actor, and songwriter. Familiar to Broadway, radio, movie, and early television audiences, this "Apostle of Pep" was regarded almost as a family member by millions because his top-rated radio shows revealed intimate stories and amusing anecdotes about his wife Ida and five daughters. 

In this video clip, Cantor sings, dances, plays the clarinet and tells a couple of jokes.

Enjoy!
