This chapter presents the text of Edith Garson's 1938 article about George Gershwin's musical career. Garson provided an overview of Gershwin in Hollywood from the time of his arrival in August 1936 to the moment of his death in the July of the following year. Though Gershwin completed songs for RKO films, the year 1936 represented a decline in his career. This is because his digestive system, which he called composer's stomach, continued to bother him.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, musical career, Edith Garson, motion picture songs, composer's stomach
