Despite the fact that the song never made it to the popular radio show Your Hit Parade, according to Allen Forte in The American Popular Ballad of the Golden Era, 1924-1950: A Study in Musical Design, big band performances and recordings of the song made it a standard. More on John Latouche at JazzBiographies. Although it ran for only 42 performances it produced a well-received cast album under the auspices of conductor/arranger Sy Oliver.
