Description: Tango music is played in the background in a club (very softly); the cue begins with a close up on a bartender rhythmically shaking an ice shaker (but not quite in tempo with the music)
On-screen: Elsie and Don Arturo at a club
Analysis: The tune has an AB structure

AB structure | calm | club | conversing | establish character | leading lady | love interest | sophisticated | source music | tango

(source melody may differ slightly from film)
