If you are (or once were) a fan of the Bing Crosby films Bells of St. Mary's (1945) and Going My Way (1944), which seemed to run on television a lot in the 1960s, you might remember a boys' choir in both movies.
|Going My Way|
Can you spot Carl "Alfalfa" Spitzer of Our Gang?
It was the choir of Old St. Mary's Church in Chicago, and they sang (with member changes) from 1904 until 1967, when the choir was disbanded. Nevertheless, the choir alumni still got together to sing, beginning in the 1970s.
