Description: Dance band music being played by a radio orchestra on a soundstage; used as underscoring (sentimental and romantic), underscoring a conversation between Peggy and William
On-screen: William talks to Peggy and Mildred
Analysis: The tune is preceded by short introduction that may have been written by Steiner; this arrangement features an interesting harmonic change in the second chorus, changing the alternating I-iii-I-iii to a chromatic VII-I-VII-I progression
