1 + 1 = 3


Some partnerships are simply curious, while others are a match made in heaven, in which the sparks fly all over. When this happens, it truly feels like 1 + 1 = 3.

This is where we meet the virtuos duo Slim & Slam, but also Dutch successors Johnny & Jones.

Frank sinatra’s live performance from the balcony is interrupted by a tipsy Dean Martin. Entertainers Bing Crosby and Bob Hope take the mickey out of each other in a radio broadcast.

Couples Louis Prima with Keely Smith, Les Paul & Mary Ford, Mildred Bailey & Red Norvo (also known as Mr. & Mrs. Swing).

Furthermore we have Louis Armstrong with Ella Fitzgerald, but also ‘the back-up\ Louis Armstrong’, Hot Lips Page with night club diva Pearl Bailey, The legendary British variety duo Flanagan & Allen and Ray Charles with Betty Carter.

Another remarkable combination was the one between the adolescent Rosemary Clooney and the capricious mature star Marlene Dietrisch. Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy summarize their cooperation with the song: ‘Let’s put out the lights and go to sleep’.
