Leo Robin

Leo Robin (April 6, 1900 – December 29, 1984) was an American composer, lyricist and songwriter. He is probably best known for collaborating with Ralph Rainger on the 1938 Oscar-winning song "Thanks for the Memory", sung by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross in the film The Big Broadcast of 1938.

Biography

Robin was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and studied at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and at Carnegie Tech's drama school. He later worked as a reporter and as a publicist.

Robin's first hits came in 1926 with the Broadway production By the Way, with hits in several other musicals immediately following, such as Bubbling Over (1926), Hit the Deck, Judy (1927), and Hello Yourself (1928). In 1932, Robin went out to Hollywood to work for Paramount Pictures. His principal collaborator was composer Ralph Rainger, together they became one of the leading film songwriting duos of the 1930s and early 1940s, writing over 50 hits. Robin and Rainger worked together until Rainger's untimely death in a plane crash on October 23, 1942. Robin continued to collaborate with many other composers over the years, including Vincent Youmans, Sam Coslow, Richard A. Whiting, and Nacio Herb Brown. Leo Robin collaborated with Rainger on the 1938 Oscar-winning song "Thanks for the Memory," sung by Bob Hope in the film The Big Broadcast of 1938, which was to become Hope's signature tune.[1]

Robin collaborated on the score for the 1955 musical film My Sister Eileen with Jule Styne, then officially retired from the movie industry. He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, having been inducted in 1972. Robin wrote many popular songs, mostly for film and television, including "Louise," "Beyond the Blue Horizon" (both songs co-written by Richard A. Whiting), "Prisoner of Love" and "Blue Hawaii".

Robin died of heart failure in Woodland Hills, California at the age of 84 and was interred in the Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery in Culver City, California.

The Adventures of Robin Hood (TV series)

topic

The Adventures of Robin Hood is a British television series comprising 143 half-hour, black and white episodes broadcast weekly between 1955 and 1959[2] on ITV.

In 1954, Grade was approached by American producer Hannah Weinstein to finance a series of 39 half-hour episodes, at a budget of £10,000 an episode, of a series she wished to make called 'The Adventures of Robin Hood', for which she had already signed Richard Greene to the proje

Yellow-bellied flyrobin

topic

The yellow-bellied flyrobin (Microeca flaviventris) is a species of bird in the Australasian robin family Petroicidae . It is endemic to New Caledonia , where it occurs on the island of Grande Terre. It occupies a range of habitats, including dry lowlands woodland, Pinus and Pandanus forest and humid forest from sea level up to 1525 m. Originally described by ornithologist Richard Bowdler Sharpe in 1903, it was long considered one of the yellow robins of the genus Eopsaltria . However, genetic study showed it is nested within the flyrobin genus Microeca , and hence its name has been changed from yellow-bellied robin to yellow-bellied flyrobin by the IOC. The yellow-bellied robin is a medium-sized Australasian robin, 14–15 cm in length and weighing around 12  g . The plumage is similar to others in the genus Eopsaltria ; dark olive-grey back, tail and wings, grey head and chest with a slightly lighter throat, and yellow belly and rump. The legs are grey.

The song was first recorded by Bing Crosby on July 5, 1934 with Irving Aaronson and his Commanders for Brunswick Records . The same year, it was one of the nominees for the inaugural "Best Song" Academy Award when it lost out to " The Continental ".

The song has been recorded by other artists, including Al Bowlly with Lew Stone and his Orchestra in 1934, Spike Jones and his City Slickers (1947), The Platters (for their 1959 album Remember When?), Erroll Garner (1961) and Mel Tormé for his 1994 album A T

Red-capped robin

topic

The red-capped robin (Petroica goodenovii) is a small passerine bird native to Australia . Found in drier regions across much of the continent, it inhabits scrub and open woodland . Like many brightly coloured robins of the family Petroicidae , it is sexually dimorphic . Measuring 10.5–12.5 cm (4–5 in) in length, the robin has a small thin black bill, and dark brown eyes and legs. The male has a distinctive red cap and red breast, black upperparts, and a black tail with white tips. The underparts and shoulders are white. The female is an undistinguished grey-brown. This species uses a variety of songs, and males generally sing to advertise territories and attract females. Birds are encountered in pairs or small groups, but the social behaviour has been little studied. The position of the red-capped robin is unclear; it and its relatives are unrelated to European or American robins but appear to be an early offshoot of the songbird infraorder Passerida . The red-capped robin is a predominantly ground-feeding b

His parents had met in Edinburgh at a dance, and his father had later travelled to Southern Rhodesia, where he worked as a teacher. Muriel had joined Sydney in 1937, and Robin was born the following July in Bulawayo . The marriage soon deteriorated, however, as Sydney, who was 13 years Muriel's senior, suffered from manic depression and had violent tendencies. Sydney refused to divorce Muriel, so Muriel left him, taking Robin with her. They moved first to Cape Town , living in a flat below Princess Frederica of Greece and the young Constantine . Towards the end of the Second World War Muriel managed to travel back to the United Kin

This sinking of a neutral nation's ship in an area considered until then to be relatively safe from U-boats , and the plight of her crew and passengers, caused a political incident in the United States. On the 75th anniversary of its sinking, the American Merchant Marine Museum in Kings Point, New York , opened an exhibit on the sinking of the Robin Moor entitled "How to Abandon ship." Construction, prior names and owners The ship was completed in 1919 by the emergency shipbuilding works of American International Shipbuilding Corp. at Hog Island , just outside Philadelphia .

The Gang's All Here (1943 film)

topic

The Gang's All Here is a 1943 American Twentieth Century Fox Technicolor musical film starring Alice Faye , James Ellison , and Carmen Miranda . The film, directed and choreographed by Busby Berkeley , is considered a camp classic , and is noted for its use of musical numbers with fruit hats . Included among the 10 highest-grossing films of that year, it was at that time Fox's most expensive production. Musical highlights include Carmen Miranda performing an insinuating, witty version of "You Discover You're in New York" that lampoons fads, fashions, and wartime shortages of the time. The film is also memorable for Miranda's "The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat", which because of its sexual innuendo (dozens of scantily clad women handling very large bananas), apparently prevented the film from being shown in Brazil on its initial release. Even in the US the censors dictated that the chorus girls must hold the bananas at the waist and not at the hip. Alice Faye sings "A Journey to a Star," "No Love, No Nothin'

Leo Bible

topic

The Leo Bible (Rome, Vatican, Bib. Apostolica, MS. Reg. gr. 1) is a Byzantine illuminated manuscript dated to the mid 10th century, making it one of the earliest surviving Byzantine Bibles . Though only one volume survives, a preface and an intact contents page tell us that the Bible originally contained both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament . Due to its association with the Macedonian Renaissance it is often grouped along with the stylistically similar Paris Psalter and Joshua Roll . Appearance The size of the Bible (410mm-270mm) is unusually large. It contains books Genesis through Psalms prefaced by 18 full-page miniatures rendered in a colorful, ‘painterly’ fashion that were inserted on separate leaves, suggesting that they were perhaps added after the initial completion of the text. The miniatures are rendered largely in figural and architectural forms that reflect the Macedonian Renaissance’s interest in classicism. However, the visual content as well as the verse inscriptions, presumed to
