Funny, I was just watching Till the Clouds Roll By the other night.

I love the story that when Kern told his wife that he would be played by Robert Walker in the film, she suggested he play himself and send Walker home to her.

Till the Clouds Roll By is about Jerome Kern the way Dog Day Afternoon is about cocker spaniels!
