    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Ethel Merman was promised top billing and so was Jimmy Durante by the Producer Vinton Freedley in Cole Porter's "Red Hot and Blue" 32 years ago, so they opted an X with Jimmy's name one diagonal and Ethel's the other, the real winner was Bob Hope, whose name was the only one legible!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The War of Noses has been waged continually since 1937, when Cole Porter's "Bed Hot and Blue" opened on Broadway and presented Bob Hope and Jimmy Durante in noise to nose hilarity for the first time.
