This chapter focuses on the Hollywood career of Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh. McHugh and Fields went to Hollywood as a songwriting team, like Rodgers and Hart, or George and Ira Gershwin. They signed their first contract with MGM studios on October 3, 1929, just a few weeks before the stock market crash. The first film that Dorothy and Jimmy provided songs for, Love in the Rough (1930), was the sort of cheery fare that would become typical of musicals produced during the Depression.

Keywords:   MGM studios, women songwriters, Love in the Rough, Hollywood
