Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte (c. 1964) was intended to be birthday gal Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s second film together, unfortunately, the harsh rivalry between the two great stars led to Crawford ending her part who was replaced by Gone with the Wind’s Olivia de Havilland. During the short time Crawford worked on this film, Davis ordered that Coca-Cola be the only soft drink available on set… now if you know anything about Joan Crawford, you know that her last husband, Alfred Steele, was CEO of Pepsi Cola, Coca-Cola’s biggest rival.

Yes, and they are available on some soundtrack CDs that include out-takes, such as this one:

Here's a clip:

Thanks! He had a very good voice (I only really know him from Beverly Hillbillies).

Lomm, since you like Ebsen's singing voice, you might enjoy some of the MGM musicals he made pre- and post-Oz, where he sings and dances. He actually worked with Judy Garland once before, in Broadway Melody of 1938. Here's another little clip:
