Please does anyone know ...


if actor Harry Morgan really sang in this movie or was he edited over with another singers voice ? Only reason I ask is because I'm watching this movie right now . I noticed in the song about " Broadway " when he was playing the piano and sang his solo line part . It sounded a bit different from the other singing voices like it was dubbed over . If he really did sing these songs himself he had a really good singing voice .

This is a late response to the question, but I believe that it is Harry Morgan who sings in "Look Out Broadway." The voice sounds convincingly like Harry Morgan's, and unfortunately to disagree with you, his part isn't well sung. (Earlier in the movie it was even suggested that he couldn't sing, in a scene when he did a run-through the song "Frankie and Johnnie.") The assumption that Harry Morgan does his own singing is also because the two women's voices (Donna Douglas and Audrey Christie) are excellent, and probably dubbed by others (though I have no reason to know that both weren't excellent singers). The soundtrack credits at IMDB show the song as "performed and sung by Elvis Presley, Eileen Wilson, and Ray Walker." I can make no sense of that, unless those were the names of two actual vocalists, apart from EP, and even then, one member of the quartet is omitted.

I'd be happy to be enlightened. I like that song, as well as most of the music in this movie. It would be a credit to the two actresses in that song if they actually sang it, and I've always enjoyed Harry Morgan as a non-singing actor, so he gets a pass.

Ray Walker probably a member of El's Jordanaires;

I'm watching it on CBS right now and had to see what anybody else thought. I really don't think it was him.
