Monday Music: Inka Dinka Doo (Jimmy Durante)

Has there ever been a greater showman that Jimmy Durante? He was pure showmanship -- upbeat, entertaining, and contagious! In this movie clip from the 1944 movie, Two Girls and a Sailor, you also get to see the legendary Harry James and his orchestra. Durante actually wrote the music for "Inka Dinka Doo" (Ben Ryan wrote the lyrics). It became a major hit record for Jimmy Durante after the song debuted in the 1934 movie, Palooka.
