Ben Pollack had a top-notch band in the late 1920s and into the 1930s with a number of outstanding side men who later became stars in the big band era.  But enduring success  was always elusive for Pollack – and he apparently became increasingly bitter about it over the years.  In 1971 he hanged himself.

    The movie that I’ ve seen over than…some a hundred times is THE GRAPES OF WRATH and because here in Athens the price of water is only…2 $ per 1 m³=1000 liters; on 39:34 as the film unfolds; please look the price of..privatised water on label…15cents per gallon. That means…about 40$ per 1000 liters.
    Water; water; water; please water….
    May be you know the case of LADY BE GOOD the airplane 1943(for details on wikipedia) and the…horrible death of 9 crew.
