Larry's lyrics were gay and clever and witty but in them all was the note of sadness...
Hollywood and truth - like oil and water...here, Lorenz Hart is a small, sad, unlucky-in love kind-of-guy...not the repressed, depressed, hard-drinking homo that he actually was.
A squeaky clean hatchet job...the truth at the expense of bums on seats - never an issue with Hollywood - bums all the way.
Encomium to Larry Hart (1895-1943), seen through the fictive eyes of his song-writing partner, Richard Rodgers (1902-1979): from their first meeting, through 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 plays, characters' visits to night clubs, and impromptu performances at parties. We also see Larry's scattered approach to life, his failed love with Peggy McNeil, his unhappiness, and Richard's successful wooing of Dorothy Feiner.
