Man Of Brooklyn

Happy birthday, composer Mitch Leigh.  Born Irwin Mitchnik, he studied music at Yale and became one of the top jingle writers around.  Then he turned to Broadway, where his first musical was Man Of La Mancha, a blockbuster.  He wrote a handful of other musicals, all flops.  But hey, one blockbuster and a bunch of jingles can pay for the rest.

Yes, that's her. And that's Barry Manilow singing.
