Johnny Mercer was one of the most prolific songwriters of 20th Century America. During his decades long career he wrote the lyrics for such memorable songs as “Moon River”, “Blues In the Night”, “Hooray For Hollywood”, “Laura”, “Something’s Gotta Give”. The list Mercer’s hits goes on and on. He was nominated for 18 Academy Awards and wrote songs for Broadway too. If that wasn’t enough, he was also one of the founders of Capitol Records. Tonight on Inquiry we chat with ROBERT KIMBALL, writer, music critic of the New York Post and Editor of the Complete Lyrics series of books. The latest monumental volume in that wonderful series is THE COMPLETE LYRICS OF JOHNNY MERCER. Tune in and find out who dubbed Lauren Bacall’s singing voice in “To have and To Have Not”. The answer will surprise you.
