All that remain from the 1924 stage smash are the wonderful tunes and the title in this second remake of the story (first done as a silent in 1928). The screenwriters took it upon themselves to rewrite the story, coming up with some meaningless drivel to fill up the dead space between

songs. But it's the songs that please, especially the Academy Award winning "The Last Time I Saw Paris" (Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein II, sung by Ann Sothern), which spawned controversy because it wasn't written for the movie. Other tunes include: "So Am I," "Oh Lady Be Good," "Fascinating

Rhythm," "Hang on to Me" (George, Ira Gershwin), "You'll Never Know" (Roger Edens), "You're Words, My Music" (Edens, Arthur Freed), "Saudades" (Edens), "Alone" (Freed, Nacio Herb Brown). Oh, the story. Sothern and Young are songwriters in love who split up, can't live without each other, and get

back together. Forget about the plot; just listen to the music.
