Had he lived, November 18 would have marked Johnny Mercer’s 100 birthday. I believe the TCM documentary is honoring the occasion. I didn’t see it but I’ll bet it was great. Since it is Mr. Mercer’s 100th birthday celebration, I chose a video of Johnny himself performing one of his own numbers. It’s not “Moon River” or “Jeepers Creepers” but “Save The Bones For Henry Jones” is a fun little number and you get bonus Nat King Cole.
