Riding High is a 1950 black and white musical racetrack film featuring Bing Crosby and directed by Frank Capra. The songs were sung as Riding High was being filmed instead of the customary lip-synching to previous recordings. The film is a remake of an earlier Capra film called Broadway Bill (1934). While the film is generally a light musical comedy, it has an unexpected tragic turn in its story.
