Moonlight and Pretzels

Moonlight and Pretzels (Universal, 1933) was the first motion picture musical to which Yip made a substantial contribution. Coming on the heels of the success earlier the same year of 42nd Street, it’s a backstage story about a struggling songwriter (Roger Pryor). Includes “There’s a Little Bit of You in Every Love Song” (Fain), and four Harburg-Gorney songs: “Ah, But Is It Love?” “Dusty Shoes,” “Moonlight and Pretzels” and “Let’s Make Love Like the Crocodiles.”
