  • According to his publicity, Russian opera singer-turned-Hollywood bit-part player Adia Kuznetzoff could sing full throttle in "all languages." He did so both often and well in films ranging from the Jeanette MacDonald-Nelson Eddy operetta Maytime (1937) to the 1943 Universal horror flick Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man. Kuznetzoff was in especially fine fettle in the latter, leading the villagers in a rousing rendition of "Faro-La, Faro-Li," a ditty composed for the occasion by Curt Siodmak and Hans J. Salter and containing the chilly refrain: "For life is short, but death is long, Faro-La, Faro-Li!" In the Paramount musical Rainbow Island (1944), Kuznetzoff, as an executioner, equally memorably joined comedian Gil Lamb in a chorus or two of "Boogie-Woogie-Boogie Man."
