Tonight on PBS's much acclaimed soap-opera, Downton Abbey, a character placed a record on a newly-acquired grammaphone, wound the crank, and out of the horn floated this exquisite melody; never do I hear it, at least as sung by "Sally," without being transfixed. Incredibly, this immense hit is off-handedly dismissed as "just another Broadway flop," or words to that effect. The recorded voice sounded similar to that of Marilyn Miller, but it wasn't played long enough for me to be sure. Anyone else hear it?
