A vague recollection is that Debbie Reynolds sang this one in one of her movies, possibly Tammy and the Bachelor (1957) and it was briefly popular on radio and jukeboxes, by a number of singers, in the late 50s US.

There are a number of sites with info on Debbie's movies, but none that I find with a quick search that identifies what songs were included. If my memory isn't completely off (not a certainty) there probably was a published "modern movie version" of the sheet music, and some recycled/republished CDs. Again, the CDs offered don't provide a play list, so I guess they're only for old fans with memory better than mine.

But possibly, it's a traditional song that once made the big time in Hollywood, and the movie verson may be where a few 'catters parents learned it (?).
