Good morning.

Sorry, Mr Murray is listening to an audition.

Will you leave a message? Thank you.

Here they come again.

Good morning. You got a lot of colour

in your left cheek this morning.

- A little something to remember us by.

- That's awfully nice of you.

- Don't mention it.

- Yeah, don't.

Any chance of Mr Murray

listening to the band?

Sorry, I haven't been able

to get you an appointment.

Couldn't you sneak us in?

I'd like to, but Mr Murray isn't considering

anything but a big-name band for Sun Valley.

(woman singing)

Hey, that's Vivian Dawn.

- Isn't she wonderful?

- Wonderful? Why, she's...

Yeah, wonderful.

And a twinkle in your eye

I remember, oh so clearly

I didn't know her eyes were blue.

I always figured they were kind of hazel.

Oh, get her off your mind, will you?

He's been dreaming about her for days.

That's the kind of girl I dream about.

But not the kind I get.

- So divine...

- (brass section breaks in very loudly)

It happened in Sun Valley

Not so... Not so...

Stop! Stop it!

(music stops)

Jimmy, at rehearsals

I asked you not to do that.

- I'm playing it the way I arranged it.

- Well, I'll sing it the way I sing it!

Now just a minute...

- What happened?

- She didn't follow the music.

The leader crossed her up.

Who are they auditioning,

the band or me?!

This band is just as...

- Miss Dawn!

- Now try to sell your band!

- Miss Dawn...

- Yes?

I think you're right. Any leader that would

do that deserves to be walked out on.

- Well, thank you.

- May I help you on with your coat?

- Miss Dawn, I'm terribly sorry.

- I'm sure it wasn't intentional.

If he'd put his foot out and tripped her,

it couldn't have been more deliberate.

- I beg your pardon, who are you?

- He don't know us?! How are ya?

This is Ted Scott, Phil Corey

and the Dartmouth Troubadours.

- I'm their manager, Jerome K Allen.

- How do you do?

Miss Dawn,

won't you continue your audition?

I wouldn't sing another note with

Jimmy Norton's band if... Not even if...

- Can you play "Sun Valley"?

- I can get a copy in ten minutes.

- What music have you?

- "The Anvil Chorus" to "Beat Me, Daddy".

Look at this. I know your style,

and that's right up your alley.

Look at this. I know your style,

and that's right up your alley.

I mean, it's your type.

If Mr Murray would like to continue

with this band, I'm ready.

By all means, Miss Dawn.

( "Moonlight Serenade")

( segues into

"I Know Why (And So Do You)")

Why do robins sing in December

Long before the springtime is due?

And even though it's snowing

Violets are growing

I know why and so do you

Why do breezes sigh every evening

Whispering your name as they do?

And why have I the feeling

stars are on my ceiling?

I know why and so do you

When you smile at me

I hear gypsy violins

When you dance with me

I'm in heaven

when the music begins

I can see the sun when it's raining

I can see the sun when it's raining

Hiding every cloud from my view

And why do I see rainbows

when you're in my arms?

I know why and so do you

When you smile at me

I hear gypsy violins

When you dance with me

I'm in heaven when the music begins

I can see the sun when it's raining

Hiding every cloud from my view

And why do I see rainbows

When you're in my arms?

I know why and so do you

I know why

And so do you

- Thank you, Miss Dawn. Very good.

- Thank you.

I want to talk to you a minute.

That's a grand arrangement.

Who did it?

Modestly, I did. But it never sounded

as well as when you sang it.

Modestly, thank you.

- Make a deal with Miss Dawn.

- And the band?
