My God, I find myself agreeing with Kendall. Paul Robeson was, in addition to his scholastic, athletic, political, theatrical and social accomplishments, one of the all-time great bass-baritone voices. (Hammerstein and Kern wrote "Ol' Man River" for Robeson but he was unavailable for the Broadway production of Show Boat. He, always, included it in his concerts). After he, returned from Russia, he lived out his years here, in Philadelphia. He was such a great singer that, when he starred in the motion picture. "King Solomon's Mines", he sang a few numbers.
