Here is Bing's eldest son on THE TWILIGHT ZONE. This episode originally aired in 1964 and called "Come Wander With Me". The plot was about a singer Floyd Burney searches the backwoods for new songs and finds Mary Rachel and much more deep in the Twilight Zone.
Interesting info on the episode: As a teenager, Liza Minnelli, auditioned for the role of Mary Rachel opposite Gary Crosby. Minnelli was so nervous, producer William Froug commented: "She'll never make it." Minnelli lost out to Bonnie Beecher.
Also this was the final episode of Twilight Zone to be filmed, although two episodes filmed earlier were aired afterwards...
Creepy thing, this serial. I heard a lot about it but never had the chance to watch it. Gary looks a lot like Bing, same gestures, same voice when talking. But no joy. I feel sorry for him.ReplyDelete
The TWILIGHT ZONE is one of my favorite shows of all time. I have this complete episode on DVD. Gary had the talent but as you said not the joy.ReplyDelete
I also feel sorry for Gary. Awful childhood, no wonder he had no joy.ReplyDelete
