This beautiful restoration was just completed. No detail was left to chance by the meticulous owners of this fine Craftsman style house. This style architecture was popular into the 1930’s.  Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks are specialists in the music of the 1920’S and 30’S.  This song is from the 1937 movie of the same name; sung by Fred Astaire and danced by Fred and Ginger at the end of the film.
