Description: Music is played at a party; the tune "Close to Me" by Victor Scherzinger, which was used extensively in an another RKO film from the same year, "The Woman Between"; this could be a re-used recording; Onscreen we see a string quartet playing (and complaining that they've had to play an extra hour and a half because of the groom not showing up); the music gets quieter as characters move to another room at the party
On-screen: People at a party
