    "The Eddie Cantor Story", I think I can state with equivocation, is not one the greatest musicals to come from a Hollywood studio during the 'Golden Age' of film musicals and its star, Keefe Brasselle,does not appear to be always comfortable in the role of the banjo-eyed entertainer/5(29). Eddie Cantor (–) was one of the most important entertainers of the 20th century, starring in theater, film, radio, and television. His immense popularity, his pride in his Jewish heritage, and his engagement with political issues distinguished him from other headliners of his era.

    the unproduced eddie cantor musical Brian Gari has finally released the music he has written (so far) for a musical on his grandfather, the legendary Eddie Cantor. The CD includes an 8-page booklet with the storyline & all the lyrics as well as rare photos. Story of the rise to fame of Eddie Cantor, told against background of his orphan childhood and the later ups and downs of his married life. Musical biography. Screenplay by Jerome Weidman, Sidney Skolsky and Ted Sherdeman. From a story by Sidney Skolsky.

    The Story. Eddie Cantor was born on the Lower East Slde of New York City in (exact date in question) and lost his parents by the age of three. Upon receiving the news that her grandson was now an orphan, his grandmother, Esther, took care of him. Eddie Cantor also wrote the books "Ziegfeld, the Great Glorifier" and "As I Remember Them," and the autobiographies "My Life Is In Your Hands" and "Take My Life." - IMDb Mini Biography By: Hup!
