The Country Girl (1954)- A nervous Bing

On TCM 8/3/16- George Seaton’s The Country Girl (1954) – Screen greats William Holden as the director of a play, Bing Crosby as the problem star, and Grace Kelly in an Oscar winning role as Bing’s down to earth strong wife all give great performances in one of my favorite backstage movies. The usually cool relaxed Bing Crosby is very convincing as Frank Elgin, an alcoholic has-been musical stage actor nervously trying to make a comeback-unlike the Bing we know there is tension at every note!
