SCOPITONES SATURDAY: "I CRIED FOR YOU"


Lounge singer Sonny King loves women and it certainly shows in this Scopitone. King was Dean Martin's roommate when they were first trying to get into show business and introduced Martin to a young Jerry Lewis. King moved to Las Vegas and quickly became a fixture in the local clubs until his death. He died at age 83 on February 3, 2006 of cancer.

I love this video. Sonny is awesome. I think I've posted this clip on both of my blogs in the past because I enjoy it so much.

I'd never heard of Sonny King until I saw this Scopitone. Sounds like he was quite the ladies' man.
