b. Carl Pederson, 24 Dec 1895, Copenhagen, Denmark, d. 26 Sept 1958, Copenhagen, Denmark. An elegant and romantic vocalist, acting professional and dancer within the musical theater and movies, Brisson was an up-and-coming boxer prior to making his stage debut like a dancer during his teenagers. He relocated to Britain in 1921 where he made an appearance in vaudeville revues, and experienced leading functions in revivals from the Merry Widow (1923) as well as the Buck Princess (1925), before taking pleasure in great achievement with two Western imports, The Apache (1927) and Question Bar (1930). Nevertheless, his status as something of the matinée idol is situated primarily on his movies, many recordings, and cabaret function. After producing some early speaking images in Britain, in 1934 Brisson visited Hollywood to superstar in the display screen version of Earl Carroll’s strike stage musical, Murder ON THE Vanities, where he presented the song which was to be his theme melody, ‘Cocktails For Two’ (Sam Coslow -Arthur Johnston). A season later, he had taken the business lead in two even more US films, Dispatch’s Café and ALL OF THE Ruler’s Horses. Within the last mentioned he co-starred using the American celebrity Mary Ellis, and sang another amount that became discovered with him, ‘A Small Light Gardenia’ (Coslow). In 1936 Brisson produced his exclusive foray onto the brand new York musical stage in Sigmund Romberg and Otto Harbach’s operetta, Forbidden Melody. He eventually dedicated himself to worldwide cabaret looks, and was knighted from the kings of Denmark and Sweden.
