Can anyone tell me what band was playing at the Paramount in Times Square on 12/07/1941?
Also, what movie was playing?
SKYLARK with Claudette Colbert and Ray Milland was the movie.
Harry James and his band along were Ray Bolger was the act.
Did the shows go on that evening? I imagine so… probably with more emotion that usual.
It appears that aside from rounding up Japanese Americans and taking them to Ellis Island and closing the Nippon Club in Times Square, the other shows went on as normal.
