George Sanders Sings Cole Porter

George Sanders, the unforgettable Addison DeWitt in “All About Eve,” sings Cole Porter’s “Thank You So Much, Mrs. Lowsborough-Goodby” on Ford Star Jubilee: You’re the Top, a TV tribute to Porter originally telecast by CBS on October 6, 1956. Sanders accompanies himself on the piano. The song was written for “Ever Yours,” an unproduced 1934 musical. In a lifetime of deadpan, perhaps Sanders’s greatest act of irony was the stated reason for his suicide, which took place on April 25, 1972: “Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored.”
