* ThoseTwoActors: As mentioned before, Bing and Bob Hope in the ''Film/RoadTo'' films. They had a RealLife friendship as well!
** To add to the cameraderie, Dorothy Lamour appeared in all of them as well, which was [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded by Bing]] at the top of ''Road to Morocco'': [[NoFourthWall "I'll lay you eight-to-five that we meet Dorothy Lamour!"]]
** Crosby would often do [[TheCameo a cameo]] appearance in Hope's other movies as well; in at least [[Film/ThePrincessAndThePirate one case]] he [[TheAce steals the heroine away]] in the process.

Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby started his career as a singer and made it big in the early 1930s with Decca Records. In 1942 he recorded what would become his most famous legacy: the IrvingBerlin song "White Christmas". When it was released, it stayed at #1 on the charts for over 11 weeks. It has remained a perennial Christmas favorite in the United States. In fact, Crosby recorded numerous ChristmasSongs over the years, which is mainly how the younger generation is familiar with him. His album ''Music/MerryChristmas (1945)'', a CoverAlbum full of Christmas-themed songs, has sold over 15 million copies worldwide and is the second-best-selling Christmas album of all time, behind Music/ElvisPresley's ''Elvis' Christmas Album'' (1957).

Crosby pioneered pre-recorded radio shows, and was an astute businessman. He sponsored the development of the videotape and invested in a little company called Minute Maid. At one time he was part owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
