For those who feel Eddie and his co-writers should get an award from ASCAP for his great composition MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG (The Warner Brothers Cartoon Theme) in 2010 when it will have been played for 75 years, please write the president, Paul Williams, at

It has come to our attention that two of the long lost shorts that Eddie Cantor did at Paramount have been possibly lost forever. It seems that Paramount sold the films to Republic and Cockeyed News and That Party In Person disintegrated. If anyone has any knowledge of any existing prints, please email us here.

STAMP OF APPROVAL? Doesn't Eddie deserve a US postage stamp for not only being a major star for 6 decades but for his humanitarian work in starting The March of Dimes, creating children's safety slogans, The Heart Fund, Cancer Fund, War Bonds and a million other charitable things? Write:
