A reader writes to inform me that Charles’ singing in 1938 “Start Cheering” was dubbed by one Robert Paige.

Robert Paige 2

This actor/singer started life as John Arthur Paige in Indianapolis in 1910, became David Carlyle for his early radio career, and spent the bulk of his film career as Robert Paige while at Columbia, Warner, Paramount and Universal.

Wikipedia has some great info on the fella, as does this entry at IMDB.

Thank you to Scott MacGillivray for the information.
