"I'm In The Market For You": Portland Pop Stars Inspire Mel Blanc
This lecture will introduce the audience to three Oregon performers whose ascent to stardom Mel Blanc directly witnessed. Portland born and raised George Olsen shot to national stardom when Fanny Brice heard him play at Portland Hotel and recruited him for the Ziegfeld Follies in New York. He became a Broadway star and sold millions of records  all in front of Mel Blanc's impressionable eyes. Lee Morse was a Portland born, Idaho raised singer who also sold tons of records, and was a big star on the radio. Del Porter was a friend of Mel Blanc's, a fellow musician, who as part of the singing group The Foursome, performed on Broadway and appeared behind Eleanor Powell in Born To Dance (1936). Porter was from Newburg.

Guest speakers: Surprise speaker, to be announced!

Films: Dennis will show films of Portland bandleader turned national superstar George Olsen, Oregon born singer-songwriter Lee Morse,  and Del Porter, the Newberg born friend of Mel Blanc's who beat him to the Big Screen.

This lecture is the second of four.
