Use of "Moonlight Serenade" in A NIGHT AT THE ADONIS
There used to be a large wooden bar at the old Adonis.
This was brought to full life in the film.
Drinks were served to the guys and "Moonlight Serenade" was played in the background so they could sashay around in a low-blase and nonchalant-cool low-slung way.
This was indeed a lush treatment and was probably Glenn Miller.
Eventually this bar was removed, although before and after the film it was used as a private relationship-development location.
A number of beautiful organisms could occasionally be found there...
It might have been Benny Goodman, but I think Rosemary Clooney and Doris Day did versions, too. In any case, this was big band sound and Jack and his buddies seemed to luxuriate in the chorus that starts with "Glam-uh..."
The African-American known in the film only as "Bertha" who sold tickets at the "box office" had held the actual job before the film was made.
She continued to work there in the same capacity for several years after the film's release...
