This chapter focuses on the end of the partnership between Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh and her collaborations with other composers. By 1936, despite their many songwriting successes, Fields and McHugh had ceased to be a team. After an eight-year partnership, they never wrote another song together. If there was acrimony in their breakup, McHugh was too much of a gentlemen and Fields too much of a lady to discuss these matters publicly.

Keywords:   Dorothy Fields, women songwriters, collaborations, Jimmy McHugh
