BE A CLOWN

Latest update on 14/07/2009

Artist: Judy Garland & Gene Kelly
Author: Cole Porter
Label: MGM
Year: 1948

In film The Pirate.

Covers:

1952:

Donald O'Connor [as Make 'Em Laugh (Brown/Freed) in film Singin' In The Rain; also in film The Sunshine Boys ('75)]

2004:

Kevin Kline [in film De-Lovely where he's Cole Porter]

Hollywood needed a Be A Clown-alike song for Donald O'Connor and there was no time to waste. Arthur Freed & Nacio Herb Brown came up with Make 'Em Laugh, which sounded like a blueprint. Cole Porter didn't object.
