Vincent Youmans' "...name may not be well rememberd, but his songs-TEA FOR TWO, GREAT DAY, SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY, HALLELUJAH, TIME ON MY HANDS, MORE THAN YOU KNOW, I WANT TO BE HAPPY and many others-are known and beloved by everyone. This is the first biography of the man who wrote these marvelous, familiar tunes, whose 1925 Broadway smash NO, NO, NANETTE was the biggest musical comedy hit of the twenties, and who was commissioned to write the score for the first Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers film, FLYING DOWN TO RIO. Bordman chronicles Youman's glamorous life, from his birth into a privileged and wealthy New York family, through his early triumphs and legendary pecadilloes, to the trials of his later years. Bordman's fascinating portrait unravels Youman's complex personality as it establishes his rightful place in the annals of American music and popular culture. " 16-page b/w photo section. Index.
