Thank you for sharing this, James ! When you told the part about Tommy looking directly at YOU for the chorus it sent chills up my spine. I have gathered over the years that Tommy was a rather curmudgeonly sort, quite different from his brother, but yet there is a charisma and a magnetism that I sense when I've watched some of the old film clips he was featured in. I can't help but wonder what it might've been like when he ran up against other formidable personalities - such as that of Hoagy Carmichael. A sort of "Clash of the Titans" is what I envision.
