The Mills Brothers “Lazy River” Theatrical Short (1944)


I’ve made a mention before that the road that eventually led me to the Retroist was done mostly by my Grandmother when I was an infant and young boy. Laying down for a nap meant being serenaded by the likes of the Mills Brothers or perhaps Louis Armstrong or the Rat Pack. While this made High-School interesting in terms of my musical tastes I am very grateful for being introduced to the Mills Brothers at such an early age.

Here is the theatrical short from Official Films, ‘Lazy River’, one of my favorite songs of the group started performing back in 1944!
