Does anyone know the title? [more inside]

Name some reluctant heroes from movies

Emphasis on reluctant. Han Solo, for example. Katniss kinda fits the bill, but she drops the reluctance pretty early on I think. Who are your favorite reluctant heroes?

Looking for a specific recording of "If I Could Be With You"

I'm looking for a particular recording of the jazz standard "If I Could Be With You (One Hour Tonight)" written by James P. Johnson and Henry Creamer. The recording I heard was probably from the 40s or 50s, and features a few male vocalists (three tenors I think), all singing the melody in unison together (not harmonizing) over a pretty sparse arrangement. It was a pretty cool sound. Thanks for any help! [more inside]
