From the Archives: Bowery to Broadway ( 1944 )

Handsome Turhan Bey and pretty Susanna Foster are performing at the piano in this scene from RKO's 1944 production Bowery to Broadway. Ms. Foster was born Suzanne Larson but took the name Susanna after the song "Oh, Susanna" and Foster from the song's writer, Stephen Foster.

From the Archives is a series of posts where we share photos from the Silverbanks Pictures collection. Some of these may have been sold in the past, and others may still be available for purchase at our eBay store :

  1. When I see Turhan Bey, I always think of his appearances in horror films like THE MUMMY'S TOMB and THE MAD GHOUL. I think that's because I was attracted to those memorable "B" films as a kid. But just look at those eyes...I still don't trust him!
