Hoagy was a songwriter way back. While I can't name any songs off the top of my head I'm sure that we all know quite a few.

More than a "songwriter" was in films along with having many famous connections, and many awards including the "AA"s".

There were many characatures of Hoagy, usually showing a cleft chin and large nose.  There were similar characatures of both Hoagy and Jimmy Durante.   The phrase "aha cha cha" comes to mind, but I think that is associated with Durante.  The Hanna-Barbarra cartoon "The Flintstones" (c 1963?) had "Hoagy" featured in a couple episodes.  He often had his hat almost on the back of his head rather than on top, a cigar hanging from his lip, doing some jazzy word play that was similar to "scat/jazz singing" like King Louie (Louie Prima) did in the Disney "Jungle Book" cartoon.

FYI - the guy on the left above is Charles Krauthammer... not Hoagy Charmichael.

IMO, one of the true measures of fame and success for this period is a star appearing in the Flintstones, or the Beverly Hillbillys/Pettie Coat Junction/Green Acres.... Sorry Stephen....but if you aren't up on these things, your missing quite a snapshot of 1950/60's America.

I know them all and spent many an hour sitting in front of the TV as a kid.

The good old golden days of television. So back to the watches :-)
