At the Music Hall: A Peach of a Pair, 1930

Jack Haley

"Follow Thru," a 1930 Technicolor musical from MGM featured a host of songs which would become popular hits of the era. The film was based on a 1929 play of the same name by Frank Mandel and Laurence Schwab which starred Jack Haley (of “Tin Man” fame). Haley went on to reprise his role in the film. One of the songs, unique to the film version, “A Peach of a Pair” by George Marion was a real stand-out.
