Early life and family

John Towner Williams was born on February 8, 1932 in Floral Park, New York, to Esther (née Towner) and Johnny Williams, a jazz percussionist who played with the Raymond Scott Quintet. Williams has said of his lineage, “My father was a Maine man—we were very close. My mother was from Boston.

Musical Films Of 1932

This blog is all about musical films of 1932, now I’m not much into Musicals, but to talk about my second favorite topic on this (my website), which is music. So I have to type about music as well, or start another website (now there’s a thought), but their are some Musicals that I do like. Their aren’t on every year, nor not all are worth watching twice. Maybe, it’s because, their really one and the same movie, I mean, it’s girl meet boy, and try to win him in the end, with songs just added in to make you feel better about yourself and sell more tickets and more 78’s. For those that don’t know what 78’s are, I think it’s about time I should type you about it, but not here. This blog is about Musical Films Of 1932, and not how fast a single was...

As much as I love music, I also love film, so for every year I’m on, I’ll be texting you about my favorite film that has a soundtrack  even though I prefer action and comedy, they don’t have a soundtrack, and I’m not going to break my rules for my selfish interests. If I wanted to text about Films, I should have started one, and not have it on my website, however, other interest I have does have music in it, so I’ll be adding them to my website, when the time is right.

Some years, I may not like any of them, so some of my blogs won’t mean a thing, but others will have plenty of meaning, so here’s what was shown in 1931, and I only like one of them, which I didn’t know was made in 1931, so even I am learning as I go.
