That guy from Glee I'd never heard of

I'm sure we all heard or read about Cory Monteith, the actor from the TV show Glee who was found dead, apparently from a drug overdose. I didn't post anything about it, in part because I don't watch Glee and wouldn't have been able to tell you anything about the deceased. That, and he didn't have anything to do with classic movies as far as I know.

I did try to think of any movies from the studio era with school glee clubs, since it might have bene more interesting blogging about that than anything mentioning what TCM's prime time programming theme was. But it wasn't until this morning that I remembered there was a short about one of the famous boys' choirs from the studio era: Forty Boys and a Song. It turns out the short is also available on Youtube:

I never heard of him either. Glad I wasn't the only one!
