Hi Alex,

Jen probably got the movie tickets figures from this Wikipedia article:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bing_Crosby#Career_statistics
A survey in 2000 found that with 1,077,900,000 movie tickets sold, Crosby was the third most popular actor of all time, behind Clark Gable (1,168,300,000) and John Wayne (1,114,000,000).
This is the source for the Wikipedia article:
Macfarlane, Malcolm (2001). Bing Crosby – Day by Day. Lanham, Maryland: The Scarecrow Press, Inc. pp. 670–671. ISBN 0-8108-4145-2
