Rock legend Roger McGuinn recently sent us an email saying he'd just watched the 1938 movie "Hawaii Calls" featuring Bobby Breen and Roger wondered what Bobby was up to these days.
We investigated and found Bobby living in Florida, where he's spent the past 40 years working as a theatrical agent and producer.
In the 1930s, Bobby was one of the busiest actors and most famous child stars around. Between 1936 and 1939, he starred in seven films for RKO Studios and his soprano voice was usually featured.
Now 84, Bobby tells us he's busier than every and helps book artists like Charo and Joel Grey. He says his famous singing voice is still there but he just doesn't find the time to use it anymore.
Bobby explains how he got his professional start at the age of 4 in a nightclub in his hometown of Toronto, Canada, and how his sister was the first one to recognize his gift.
Plus, he shares stories from Hollywood in the 1930s, which he still believes was its most magical time, and reveals what it was like to work with people like Bob Hope and Jackie Mason over the years.
And we even take Bobby on a trip down memory lane to play his 1938 hit, "M-O-T-H-E-R, A Word That Means the World to Me." You'll hear the 11-year-old Bobby's beautiful voice and hear from him today to explain what it was like to be known as the Toronto Soprano.
