From the moment Al Jolson started warbling on screen in , songs in movies have found a treasured place in the popular consciousness. The song lights up a memorable scene during which a tuxedoed Astaire declares his love for Rogers dancing elegantly in a feathery white gown. The song has also been covered numerous times down the years, including by jazz greats Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong on their album Ella And Louis.
