Tony Martin (1913-2012)

Singer-actor Tony Martin, who starred in such films as Ziegfeld Girl and Casbah, left this world for a better one on Friday, July 27 at the age of 98…his career is examined in nice detail in this online obituary at The Los Angeles Times.  Radio Spirits mourns his passing, recognizing Martin’s radio work on such shows as The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show (he was their male vocalist off-and-on from 1936-38), Good News, Tune-Up Time (1939-40), The Texaco Star Theatre (summer of 1947) and The Carnation Contented Hour (1948-51).

    Oh no! I was just thinking yesterday that he was someone from Hollywood’s Golden Age still with us, but apparently not. I’m mostly familiar with him from Ziegfield Girl, but also Easy to Love. I always liked him, he was so affable on screen.

  2. A friend of mine lent me her copy of Casbah back in the late 1990s, and though I was a little squeamish about watching a remake of a film I’d already seen I was really impressed with Martin in that movie. They should have let him do more.
