This chapter begins with a discussion of the musical By the Beautiful Sea and how it revisits several themes from earlier musicals the Fieldses had worked on. By the Beautiful Sea was the last work in an intensely active period in Dorothy Fields's career — three Broadway musicals and four Hollywood musicals between 1950 and 1954 In the second half of the decade, she slowed down. Redhead was the last musical she and Herbert would work on together.

Keywords:   Broadwy, women songwriters, By the Beautiful Sea, Redhead
