Goodman's moustache

by Mark Gabrish Conlan

Benny Goodman is wearing that odd moustache because in "A Song Is Born" he was cast, not as himself, but "Professor Magenbruch," one of seven professors who are writing the ultimate encyclopedia of music when they suddenly discover they know nothing about jazz and need to include it. In the film's most famous in-joke, Magenbruch hears someone refer to "Benny Goodman" and says he's never heard of him.
