Lent Day 31 "G'nite Mrs. Calabash, where ever you are..."

Recently, Cinema Dave has ended his Facebook posts with
"G'nite Mrs. Calabash, where ever you are..."

People has asked, "Who is Mrs. Calabash?"
Cinema Dave does not know. Leonard Maltin hosted a PBS special and this scholar was not certain, but he did have some interesting theories. The one certainty was that Jimmy Durante made Mrs. Calabash very famous when he concluded his show.

Jimmy "Schnozzola" Durante was a well loved performer. This is the "Schnozzola" performing with the future Chairman of the Board, a skinny Frank Sinatra;

Ella Fitzgerald & Jimmy Durante sing "Bill Bailey"

...and then Mr. Durante said "G'nite Mrs. Calabash, where ever you are..."

Oh Yeah,Http:// is nominated for a Rondo Hatton Award. Please vote Cinema Dave on ballot #15;
