A Song is Born

The back of this publicity still reads

Assisted by Danny Kaye the professors of classical music and a book of jazz. Benny Goodman tires to learn the intricacies of jazz in this scene from Samuel Goldwyn’s Technicolor comedy “A Song Is Born. ”  Seen are O.Z. Whitehead,  Danny, Hugh Hubert, J. Edward Bromber. Ludwig Stossel and Benny.  The film, which co-stars Danny and Virginia Mayo, is directed by Howard Hawks.

It must be a typo when Benny Goodman “tires to learn” and not “tries to learn” the intricacies of jazz.

And J. Edward Bromberg is misidentified as J. Edward Bromber.
