Abstract:

Unedited footage for the documentary If only for an hour. For the completed program, see: *MGZIC 9-7 If only for an hour. Composer-lyricist Sammy Fain looks back at his career: how he got his start as a songwriter, his collaboration with lyricist Lew Brown, and his experiences in writing songs for movies under the studio system. He recalls collaborating with dancer Gene Kelly, first on the music for Kelly's dance with Jerry the mouse in Anchors aweigh, then on the theme song for Marjorie Morningstar, which was sung by Kelly. In reminiscing about his collaborations with dancers and choreographers, he describes Busby Berkeley's setting of his song "By a waterfall." Throughout the interview Fain tells anecdotes about songs and personalities, and sings and plays examples of his work. Vocalist Vicki Joyce sings along with him in some of the songs.
