Johnny Long was a North Carolina-born bandleader who rose to fame with his group -- founded when he was an undergraduate at Duke University -- in the early '40s. Beginning with his hit "In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town," he and his band enjoyed a string of dance-oriented hits that brought them to movies, starting with a pair of short-subjects in 1941 and 1942 and culminating with the Abbott and Costello vehicle Hit the Ice in 1943, in which Long also had a small acting role. His last big-screen appearance came later that year in Follies Girl.
