A Notation on Soundtrack Info, 5 October 2009
Author: rchrdjerome from United States

I just read the comment left by the gentleman back in 2005 and am really glad he enjoyed the film. I only wish to correct the info here under "soundtracks". "The Lady Got a Shady Deal" was composed by my grandfather, M.K.Jerome, as noted, but the lyric was written by Charles Newman, not 20th Century-Fox composer Alfred Newman. For some strange reason neither are credited on the film itself. M.K. had to rehearse Bennett in the song of course, and said she wasn't exactly a picnic to work with! My father (who was then working on the lot as a messenger) said he had to help Bennett the day she came to the music dept. to rehearse with my grandfather. She came out in the "Grand Manner" of the stars of the period, chauffeured limo, maid, secretary, dogs and husband Gilbert Roland all bringing up the rear. But, having said all that, I've always loved Bennett's work, which is what prompted me to look this title up in the first place, and as somebody else said, in reference to "After Office Hours", she deserves to be remembered!
