Title: Queen Of The Hollywood Islands
Artist: Dorothy Lamour
Catalogue No: SEPIA 1032
Barcode: 5055122110323
Release Date: 10 May 2004

Dorothy Lamour's first major film role had her clad in a sarong in "The Jungle Princess", a film that propelled her to instant stardom and she became Hollywood's queen of South Sea island films. Fortunately she could also act, the public liked her and she sustained her long Hollywood career in over 60 films, co-starring with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in six very successful "Road To…" films.

However, a little known fact is that Dorothy Lamour had been a band singer before venturing into films, and her singing ability has often been overlooked. Her film career took precedence and she recorded sporadically but during the 1940s she recorded 8 sides for the independent Coast label. We have found and are proud to feature these rare sides plus some other previously unavailable on CD Hawaii-themed tracks. The title track, "Queen of the Hollywood Islands", where the star turns the laugh on herself was specially composed for her by Frank Loesser for her show-stopping sequence in the film "A Miracle Can Happen".
