The Marx's were saddled with boy/girl love stories in some of their moves. This song was a minor hit for Alan Jones, father of Jack Jones. Kitty Carlisle went on to marry playwright Moss Hart and appear on "Whats My Line" for about a hundred years.
George Gerswin's last completed song. He was working on "Our Love is Here to Stay", another timeless classic,  when he died in July of  1937. Notice the blurb in the lower right corner - this movie introduced Edgar Bergen and "Charlie McCarthy" to the world.
Tiny Tim resurrected this classic from 1929. "Gold Diggers of Broadway" was one of the first  "behind the scenes" movie musicals with sound and dialog.
One of my oldest pieces, from 1901.

Kipling didn't write many songs. In fact, he didn't know he wrote this one. The composer simply set a short Kipling verse to music. From 1903
Everyone knows this one.
Entertainer Eddie Cantor made this his theme song. A big hit for him in the early 1930's
Many songs were written about World War One doughboys going "over there". This one was published in 1918
