Cliff “Ukelele Ike” Edwards


Along with his cheery tenor voice and ever-present ukulele, Cliff “Ukelele Ike” Edwards was a significant vaudeville star from the 1920s who branched out into record-making (selling a reported 74 million discs), filmmaking (appearing in as much as 100 motion pictures), radio, and television. He launched such tunes as “Interesting Tempo” and “Toot, Toot, Tootsie! (Goo’bye),” and obtained his biggest record strikes using the chart-toppers “I CANNOT Give You NOT Like” and “Singin’ in the torrential rain,” nonetheless it was because the tone of voice of Jiminy Cricket within the cartoon film Pinocchio, performing “IF YOU WANT Upon a Celebrity,” that he accomplished immortality. Edwards started playing the ukulele to attract interest as a newspapers young man. In his teenagers, he relocated to St. Louis and became a performer, operating his method up to the vaudeville circuit. He and his then-partner Bob Carleton launched Carleton’s novelty track “Ja-Da” in Chicago in 1918; it consequently was documented for popular by Arthur Areas. Around this period, Edwards was dubbed “Ukelele Ike” by way of a waiter who couldn’t keep in mind his name. Splitting from Carleton, he shaped an act known as “Jazz As Is certainly” with Pierce Keegan, a vocalist and dancer. In 1920, comedian Joe Frisco got him to NY within his troupe. Edwards crossed to the reputable stage, producing his Broadway debut within the Mimic Globe of 1921, which opened up on August 15, 1921, and went for 27 shows. After many unsuccessful attempts, he finally produced his documenting debut because the kazoo participant on “Virginia Blues,” documented by Ladd’s Dark Aces on Feb 25, 1922. Exactly the same 12 months, he launched Ted Fiorito, Robert A. Ruler, Gus Kahn, and Ernie Erdman’s “Toot, Toot, Tootsie! (Good’bye)” in vaudeville, but dropped from the track when the a lot more prominent Al Jolson started performing it. Edwards was authorized to Pathe Information and produced his documenting debut like a innovator in NY in November 1923, trimming “Old-Fashioned Like” and “Lovey KEEP COMING BACK.” But his 1st chart success was included with an individual he documented in Montreal around Feb 1924 for Apex (released in the U.S. on Banner and Regal), “Where in fact the Lazy Daisies Grow.” In Apr 1924, he attained the pinnacle of vaudeville achievement, headlining as an individual act on the Palace Movie theater in NY. In August, he have scored his first TOP hit using a Pathe documenting of “It Needed to be You.” Time for the reputable movie theater, he was ensemble in George Gershwin’s musical Female, Be Great, which opened up on Dec 1, 1924, and went 330 performances. On the close from the initial action, he performed “Amazing Tempo,” and he documented the melody for a high Ten strike in 1925, also achieving the TOP that calendar year with Irving Berlin’s “ALONE,” Walter Donaldson’s “My Greatest Girl,” as well as the comic music “Who Manages the Caretaker’s Little girl?,” “IN THE EVENT THAT YOU Knew Susie (Like I UNDERSTAND Susie),” and “Paddlin’ Madelin’ House.” Leaving Female, Be Great, he became a member of the ensemble of Jerome Kern’s musical Sunny, where he sang “I’m Shifting Aside,” a music he co-wrote with Irving Caesar. The display opened on Sept 23, 1925, and went 517 shows. Edwards continued to surface in vaudeville also to rating record strikes in the next fifty percent of the ’20s with tunes compiled by the country’s best songwriters. In 1926, he strike the very best Ten with Irving Berlin’s “Keep in mind” and Harry Akst, Sam M. Lewis, and Joe Young’s “Dinah,” and in 1927 with J. Fred Coots and Clifford Grey’s “Weekend” and Cliff Friend and Lew Brown’s “I’m Tellin’ the Parrots, I’m Tellin’ the Bees (How I REALLY LIKE You).” Shifting to Columbia Information, he made the very best Ten with both edges of his solitary “Collectively” (by DeSylva, Brownish, and Henderson)/”Mary Ann” (by Abner Metallic and Benny Davis) within the springtime of 1928, after that hit number 1 on Oct 13 with Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Areas’ “I CANNOT Give You NOT Appreciate.” Edwards was headlining a four-week engagement on the Orpheum Movie theater in LA when MGM mind of creation Irving Thalberg, searching for talent to check sound movies, signed him to some four-year agreement. Though obtaining a profitable film deal symbolized a top in Edwards profession, it also proclaimed an unavoidable downturn for him. Like many superstars of other mass media coming into images, Edwards had not been ideally suited literally to tasks coordinating his prominence like a stage and documenting star. Brief, pudgy, and balding at 33, he simply wasn’t the display idol type, however the popularity he taken to photos gave him the proper to expect a lot more than simply personality parts (and he didn’t have sufficient acting experience to try out personality parts convincingly). He produced his film debut in the summertime of 1929 within the all-star talkie extravaganza Hollywood Revue of 1929, executing Nacio Herb Dark brown and Arthur Freed’s “Singin’ in the torrential rain,” and his Columbia documenting from the tune hit number 1 on August 10. Edwards spent his amount of time in Hollywood functioning at MGM for another couple of years. He made an appearance in two even more movies in 1929, in six each in 1930 and 1931, and in two even more in 1932, frequently co-starring with Buster Keaton and occasionally executing tracks he had created. But with the onset of the Melancholy, the film studios temporarily dropped fascination with musicals, and MGM allowed Edwards’ agreement to expire in 1932. (An identical downturn within the record business had triggered Columbia to lower him loose in 1930.) Freed of his film commitment, he came back to vaudeville, once again headlining on the Palace in August 1932, and NBC gave him his very own radio series, “Cliff Edwards, Ukelele Ike.” Regrettably, he had created an extravagant way of life that included alcoholism and an dependence on morphine; in March 1933, he submitted for personal bankruptcy. But with the achievement of the film 42nd Road, Hollywood’s desire for musicals was reawakened, and Paramount Photos signed him to surface in a film adaptation from the Broadway display Take a Opportunity. Released in nov 1933, the film included an interpolation of the obscure track by Harold Arlen, E.Con. Harburg, and Billy Rose previously known as “IN THE EVENT THAT YOU Believed in Me,” and today retitled “It’s Just a Paper Moon.” Edwards documented it for Vocalion and scored his 1st chart strike in four years. These successes re-established his profession, and he made an appearance within the Fox studio’s film George White’s 1935 Scandals within the springtime of 1935, after that came back to Broadway with the most recent stage edition of the same revue, George White’s Scandals, which opened up on Christmas Time, 1935, and went 110 shows. Edwards’ return was cemented when he was re-signed to MGM. Right now, his decreased stature and elevated acting experience had been appropriate towards the kinds of jobs his appearance recommended — personality parts — and he performed many of them, including a little role within the 1939 blockbuster Eliminated using the Wind. Most significant for his potential, however, was the usage of his tone of voice as the personality of Jiminy Cricket within the Walt Disney cartoon film Pinocchio in 1940. He sang the Academy Award-winning “IF YOU WANT Upon a Superstar” and “Provide a Small Whistle,” and his RCA Victor recordings of these tunes offered him his last record hits. Simply as essential, he started a long-term association with Disney, also financing his tone of voice to 1941’s Dumbo. Notwithstanding this achievement, Edwards’ finances continued to be in turmoil, and he submitted for personal bankruptcy for another amount of time in March 1941 (as well as for another amount of time in June 1949). Through the ’40s, he required to appearing mainly in B-movie Westerns, with some periodic A-movies aswell. He became a normal visitor on Rudy Vallée’s radio display in the past due ’40s, and in 1949, experienced two early tv series, The 54th Road Revue as well as the Cliff Edwards Present. In 1954, the “Disneyland” Television series signed in the atmosphere with Edwards performing “IF YOU WANT Upon a Superstar,” and he proved helpful for the Disney business in a variety of capacities in his old age. He died within a nursing house at age 76.
