It has been said that nobody has given more pleasure to more people than Bing Crosby. Variously called Uncle Sam Without Whiskers, El Bing, Le Bing, or Der Bingle, Crosby appealed to a universal audience with a talent and intellect that galvanized the mass media, and compelled a rapt public to purchase countless radios and phonographs, records and movie tickets.
