Lauder had a strong talented voice and clever compositions, freshly delivered (even today!), often packaged with oodles of rolled-R's.

Credited with the expression "The Show Must Go On", Sir Harry Lauder, received knighthood for his service during World War I, being the first performer to go the front lines to entertain troops.
