These four songs originated in the film 42nd Street. The movie musical was made by Warner Brothers Studios and starred Ruby Keeler.

It was the first film choreographed by Busby Berkley. Berkley would move onto to MGM where he would be a major contributor to the films starring Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland.
42nd Street told the story of an unknown that goes to her first audition and is hired but then ends up as the star when the lead hurts herself. The movie would be popular for years, but in 1980 the movie would go to Broadway starring Jerry Orbach and Tammy Grimes. 42nd Street would the Tony Award for best musical in 1981. A major revival would be launched in 2001.
