Singer Frances Langford, July 11Frances Langford, whose steamy rendition of "I'm in the Mood for Love" captivated soldiers stationed overseas when she was part of Bob Hope's USO tours during World War II, died July 11 at her home in Jensen Beach, Fla., said her secretary, Kim Stanton. She was 91. Langford, a recording artist, radio star and actress from the 1930s to 1950s, joined Hope's troupe to boost wartime morale at military bases and hospitals in Great Britain, Italy, North Africa and the South Pacific. She also entertained new generations of soldiers in Korea and Vietnam.
