The Wall Street Crash of 1929 dealt a devastating blow to many Broadway producers. So some of Broadway’s finest composers and lyricists were lured to Hollywood, since Movie Musicals quickly became the most popular (and affordable) entertainment available to grassroots Americans. Irving Berlin led the way; but Rodgers and Hart, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter and the Gershwin’s soon followed. The songs they (and other composers) contributed to film musicals starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney and Busby Berkley’s “All-Talking! All-Singing! All-Dancing!” GOLD-DIGGERS series form what we now call our Great American Songbook. Songs like “Let’s Face the Music and Dance,” “We’re in the Money,” “I Found a Million Dollar Baby,” “You’ll Never Know,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Our Love is Here to Stay,” You’ll Never Know” and “Forty-Second Street” kept American’s happy and hopeful during one of the darkest decades of our history!
