New York: Robbins Music Company, 1933. Sheet Music. First edition of the featured song performed on the stage of Radio City Music Hall the night it opened on December 27, 1932. The sheet music is complete and in good shape. There is a split starting at the base of the spine fold. There are a small music store price and an unobtrusive typed ownership notation on the front cover. Very Good. Item #008472
The upbeat depression-era song was written by Dorothy Fields, who had recently penned the blockbuster hit, On the Sunny Side of the Street. It was performed by Ms. Fields and her vaudeville-star father, Lew Fields, in a scene called "Night Club Revels," and the opening night program announced, "Miss Fields, daughter of Lew Fields, is making her first stage appearance." The cover features a stylized drawing of Rockefeller Center and a cameo photograph of Sameul "Roxy" Rothafel, New York's most important theatrical impresario and entrepreneur who is now best remembered for opening the city's three most fabulous movie theaters, the Roxy Theater at Times Square, the RKO Roxy (later called Center Theater), and Radio City Music Hall.
