The Singing Kid

The Singing Kid (Warner Bros., 1936). An Al Jolson musical, sections of which were directed by an uncredited Busby Berkeley, contains a bumper crop of Harburg-Arlen songs: “I Love to Sing-a” (with a lavishly staged reprise late in the film), “You’re the Cure for What Ails Me” (not to be confused with a 1930 Harburg-Gorney song with the same title), “Here’s Looking at You,” ‘My, How This Country’s Changed,” “The Swingin’est Man in Town” and “Save Me Sister.”
