Musicals on Tap

Recommended Posts

OK, here'a a key word to help answer the question. In "My Fair Lady", Eliza asks the musical question "Wouldn't It Be __________?" Fill in the blank and you have the key word you need to answer my question. By the way, Fred and Ginger were in three movies together that had music by Irving Berlin

Yes, in "Top Hat" (1935), Fred Astaire sings "Isn't This A Lovely Day to Be Caught In The Rain?". The last line is "Long As I Can Be With You, It's A Lovely Day". In "Call Me Madam" (1953), Donald O'Connor sings "It's A Lovely Day Today" to Vera-Ellen. The last few words of Fred's song and the first few words of Donald's song are "It's A Lovely Day". Both songs were written by Irving Berlin. Now here's some added trivia. Donald's song ends with the line "So If You've Got Something That Must Be Done, And It Can Only Be Done By One, There Is Nothing More To Say, Except It's A Lovely Day For Saying "It's A Lovely Day". So that song ends with the same phrase that it begins with. It's your turn, musicalnovelty. Isn't it a lovely day for a new question?

Thanks Miles. Love the song, but what tune by the Gershwin's isn't beautiful? I've been singing Embraceable You all week-end! Hope you didn't lose power this time and your dig out wasn't too rough.




In this musical, our guy falls from a substantial height while performing, ending his character's career as a dancer. Actor and film??

In "Roberta", Ginger Rogers plays Countess Scharwenka complete with a thick European accent. She used the accent because the actress who played the part on Broadway had an authentic European accent. That actress was also in several movie musicals and comedies in the thirties. Who was she?
