Rita Hayworth in “Gilda”, 1946.
A Needle in a Haystack (1934) - Herb Magidson & Con Conrad
Not originally in the stage production of The Gay Divorce, A Needle in a Haystack was written specifically for the film adaptation (retitled The Gay Divorcee). Most of the original songs from the stage production were left out of the film, with the exception of Cole Porter’s Night and Day. The number provided Fred with an opportunity to show off his unique talent and charm in his first starring feature.
