This chapter focuses on Dorothy's life and career in the early 1950s. Between 1950 and 1954, in addition to writing lyrics for four movies, she worked on three Broadway musicals. Arms and the Girl (1950), A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1951), and By the Beautiful Sea (1954) were all set between fifty and two hundred years in the past. That is, all of these musicals continue in the Americana tradition of the Fieldses' two previous musicals, Up in Central Park and Annie Get Your Gun.

Keywords:   Dorothy Fields, women songwriters, Broadway musicals, Arms and the Girl, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, By the Beautiful Sea
