Mick Pearce (MCP) Origins: Was Blue Moon a hymn? (12) RE: Was Blue Moon a hymn? 12 May 19


See the "wikipedia article on the song for its original intended use when Jean Harlow was praying:

How the sequence fitted into the movie I haven't the foggiest notion, but the purpose was to express Harlow's overwhelming ambition to become a movie star ('Oh Lord, if you're not busy up there,/I ask for help with a prayer/So please don't give me the air ...')." The song was not recorded (nor was the movie released[2]) and MGM Song No.?225 "Prayer (Oh Lord, make me a movie star)" dated June 14, 1933, was registered for copyright as an unpublished work on July 10, 1933

The rewrite also was also abandoned; The Bad In Every Man seems to have been the third version!
