And now, ladies and gentlemen,

the highlight of the evening.

For those of us in show business

or newspapers...

or who are just plain,

ordinary music listeners...

this is an occasion

of special significance and pride.

For among those who are being

honored here tonight...

is a very wonderful singer

and a very great lady...

who has been named the most courageous

entertainer of the year.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Miss Jane Froman.

[Man Narrating]

Jane Froman...

radio, musical comedy...

the movies, nightclubs...

a lot of the stuff

of which dreams are made.

But why the most courageous

entertainer of the year?

Well, let's see.

Suppose we start here...

at a radio station

in Cincinnati...

on a bright summer's morning

a few years back...

when suddenly there exploded

from a taxicab...

the figure of a young lady.

Then, as always,

in a terrible hurry.

Oh! Oh, I'm so sorry.

Please forgive me.

- L... I just wasn't looking.

- Hmm.

- Forgive me, please.

- It's all right.

Okay, boys, write your names out

and leave 'em with my secretary.

If anything comes up,

she'll let you know.

- Wait a minute. Did you like it or didn't you?

- Very nice.

Then how 'bout giving us an answer now?

After all, we're pretty busy too.

Really? Where are you working?

We just finished eight weeks

at the Palmer House in Chicago.

Before that, London, New York.

You name the spot, we were there.

Sorry, boys.

Looks like you're out of our class.

I don't think you'd be interested

in anything we'd have to offer.

Besides, this is radio,

you know, not vaudeville.

- [Door Closes]

- What a jerk.

Sure, he's a jerk.

They all are.

But that don't mean

you gotta divulge the secret.

Besides, did it ever occur to you

that maybe we weren't so hot either?

- Listen, Harry...

- This song of yours, it ain't no Berlin, brother.

Anytime you're not happy with the way

things are going, do me a favor.

- Just say so.

- Nobody said anything about not being happy.

But a guy's got a right to wonder

where all this is gettin' us.

By "all this," you wouldn't mean me

and my big mouth, would you?

That sure don't help any.

In that case, maybe we'd be doing each other

a favor if we just called it quits.

Well, I'm not suggesting it,

but it's an idea.
