 Update me on new releases by Schwartz

Arthur Schwartz (11/25/1900 - 9/03/1984)

Arthur Schwartz displayed musical interests early, teaching himself piano and harmonica. But his attorney father wanted him to go to law school, so Arthur graduated and passed the bar in 1924, all the time publishing songs. When he met Howard Dietz in 1928 they collaborated on “I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plan” and “I’ve Made a Habit of You” which appeared in Broadway’s The Little Show (1929).

In 1930 Three’s a Crowd featured the hit “Something to Remember You By.” In 1931 The Bandwagon was a huge success with “Dancing in the Dark” and “I Love Louisa.” In 1932 Flying Colors produced “Alone Together,” “Louisiana Hayride,” and “A Shine on Your Shoes.” their next 1934 show flopped but featured “You and the Night and the Music” and “If There Is Someone Lovelier Than You.”

While Schwartz endured a series of Broadway flops, he enjoyed success writing for movies. Bette Davis sang the Oscar-nominated “They’re Either Too Young or Too Old” (lyrics by Frank Loesser) in Thank Your Lucky Stars (1943). “A Gal in Calico” from The Time, the Place, and the Girl (1946) earned another Academy nomination for him and lyricist Leo Robin.
