The song was not included in the 1944 Hollywood film Lady in the Dark, a fact which Ira Gershwin found inexplicable: "Later, when Lady in the Dark was filmed, the script necessarily had many references to the song. But for some unfathomable reason the song itself—as essential to this musical drama as a stolen necklace or a missing will to.    Download this sheet!
