Although Irving Berlin didn't produce a hit song for this show, it wasn't his fault. Berlin wrote his perennial classic "Always" for this score and submitted it to the show's author George S. Kaufman, who admitted he knew little about music. Kaufman commented that he disliked the opening line 'I'll be loving you, Always" given the numerous stories about men leaving their wives for younger women. He suggested that Berlin use the line "I'll be loving you, Thursday". Although the suggestion was made in jest, Berlin pulled the song and gave it to his wife as a present. The substitute song "A Little Bungalow" was not very successful. See more »

A wonderful slice of early movie history. Talkies still in infancy. Basically a broadway play put on film. There's so much to enjoy and study. The fashion is still 20's flapper, and look at those hips and thighs, amazing. Check out the jokes, they probably were funny back then. A rich 'time machine' tapestry to appreciate. Don't try to compare but view it on its own uniqueness. Corny and wonderful.
