Words and Music

Encomium to Larry Hart (1895-1943), seen by means of the fictive eyes of his song-writing companion, Richard Rodgers (1902-1979): from their first assembly, by means of lean years and their breakthrough, to their successes on Broadway, London, and Hollywood. We see the fruits of Hart and Rodgers’ collaboration – elaborately staged numbers from their performs, characters’ visits to nighttime golf equipment, and impromptu performances at events. We additionally see Larry’s scattered lifestyle, his failed love with Peggy McNeil, his unhappiness, and Richard’s profitable wooing of Dorothy Feiner.
