Soundtracks

There'll Be Other Nights
(1939) (uncredited)
Music by Lew Pollack
Lyrics by Lew Brown
Recorded and filmed by Alice Faye but never used. As of 1970 the film was still in the studio vault but has likely decomposed since. It survives today as 16mm prints in maybe two private collections. The soundtrack has been issued on several Alice Faye albums.

25 December 2000 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Entrancing film that has high adventure, light-hearted comedy, and an offbeat romance with an oddball cast of characters. The most notable are the stars: Warner Baxter as the alcoholic down on his luck reporter, Alice Faye as the showgirl running from crime, and the multi-talented Charles Winninger as the noble head of a small American embassy under siege by a large band of Mongolian bandits. Good script, interesting complex characters, and fine performances make for an engrossing movie that has something to please every movie taste.
