A remembrance of actress Frances Langford, who captivated thousands of soldiers with her steamy rendition of "I'm in the Mood for Love." Langford played Don Ameche's insufferable wife Blanche in the popular radio comedy The Bickersons. She also appeared in 30 movies, including Yankee Doodle Dandy and The Glenn Miller Story. She was 92.
