Facts about

There is conflicting information for the original (1927) song credits. Some references list music by Ray Henderson; lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown. However, sheet music published in connection with that show, and the 1947 movie list all three for music and lyrics. The on-screen credits also lists all three for music and lyrics.

The original musical comedy opened in New York on 6 September 1927 and had 551 performances. The opening night cast included Gus Shy and 'Mary Lawlor', both of whom originated their movie roles in the play, and Inez Courtney as Babe and John Sheehan as Pooch. The 1975 revival starred Alice Faye as Professor Kenyon!
