So glad you got it, Miles!  I had one more hint left before throwing in the towel and calling it a day.

Your thread.

Thank you for solving this. I could hear Bing singing “Soon”, knew the tune, but for the life of me I couldn’t come up with the film.

Sorry, I lost track of this thread.  Now:

 

Warmed by the breath of your sighs,

Cooled by the blue of your eyes.

Hint:  Like MGM's Broadway Melody series of musicals, this song was introduced in another studio's similar series of musicals.

 Well looking at the people who recorded the song it's obviously a standard that I never heard of.

 So I listened to a bunch of those song stylists and I believe the song was probably written for Bing Crosby for some Paramount Big broadcast because Rainger was his composer.

But of course I preferred the rendition by Frank Sinatra - - Tony Bennett and Ella weren't bad either.

So according to my research the song is "I Wished on the Moon".

 And Star-- you got to take a listen to Frank's rendition.

Excellent work, Princess!  The song was introduced by Bing Crosby in The Big Broadcast of 1936.  I don't think I've heard Frank Sinatra's rendition of it.  I'll have to check that out.

And the thread goes back to you!

 Miles, I had this record when I was a kid and I always thought it was such a cute song.

I knew you would answer as soon as you got a chance to come home from the golf course. LOL

You haven't disappointed me yet!

It's your turn now--
