Description: Sentimental main title music for strings; in the coda to the opening theme, pizzicato strings and tremolos create a bit of tension; the music is rudely interrupted by a gunshot, after which we see the headline "Ex Chorus Girl Shoots Husband"

Analysis: Organized as ABA + Coda; makes use of chromatic harmonies such as borrowed chords and the common-tone diminished seventh
