This is one of those little gems one finds when least expected.

I was watching TCM this evening when a 1937 Warner Brothers Vitaphone short entitled Dark Eyes came on.
It starred Dave Apollon who was amazing in that he played virtuoso mandolin ( a Lloyd Loar Gibson F), violin, tap-danced, ballroom-danced and did comedy.
He also conducted the small orchestra which featured a Hawaiian lap-steel player.
But his mandolin playing was what grabbed me: he played Gypsy music, jazz and '30's popular songs.
So I googled him and here's what I got.

Check him out.
