CONRAD POPE with “Arthur’s Notebook”

From the 2011 movie: My Week with Marilyn starring Michelle Williams in an award winning performance as Marilyn Monroe.

The notebook writer is Marilyn Monroe’s husband playwright Arthur Miller.  In 1960, Arthur wrote something very special for Marilyn.  Click on our link below to read about that and to see the two of them dancing on the set of The Misfits.

And also to hear a wonderful jazz performance by Toots Thielemans with Til Bronner.  I love this song.

Meanwhile here is some music from the movie “My Week with Marilyn.”

CONRAD POPE  ( American composer) from the movie:

 

And here is the link to the Blogfinger article from last year with the photograph of the couple dancing.

Re-posted from 2014 on Blogfinger.net  (with a slight modification of the image.)

It’s April in Paris, right now.  And it is a fine time to visit that most romantic of cities, but sometimes April there can dip down to the 40’s—sound familiar?  And, despite Yip Harburg’s lyrics, chestnuts in blossom don’t happen till May, and nobody is setting “holiday tables under the trees.”  In Luxembourg Gardens, blooms are starting to pop in April, and they have a bandstand there. However, choose May.

“I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris
Whom can I run to
What have you done to my heart”

This song, “April in Paris” was written by Yip Harburg and Vernon Duke for a 1932 Broadway show called, “Walk a Little Faster.”  Harburg also wrote the lyrics for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”  So many have recorded “April in Paris,” but Count Basie made the most famous version.
