WE JUST PLAYED:
‘The Man in the Flying Trapeze’ was originally published in 1867, inspired by the famous trapeze artist Jules Leotard (after whom the garment is named). It became popular again in the 1930s, after Walter O’Keefe recorded it with altered faux-Victorian lyrics. The song was used in Frank Capra’s ‘It Happened One Night’ and sung by Dick Powell in ‘Twenty Million Sweethearts.’ I could not get the O’Keefe or the Powell version so here is a comic version by Eddie Cantor.
