Trivia -- Week of July 18, 2005


Recommended Posts

No takers? The answer is "By Strauss."


Years before, Vincente Minnelli had heard George Gershwin play a parody of Strauss waltzes at a party, and asked him if he and his brother Ira could turn it into a song. The result was "By Strauss", which Minnelli used in his 1936 Broadway production The Show Is On -- and 15 years later in the movie AN AMERICAN IN PARIS.
