In 1937, the year that he died at age 38, Gershwin moved to Hollywood. He completed the music for two movies. Unlike the other movie composers of his day, he not only wrote the songs but also wrote all of the instrumental music (composers such as Berlin, Porter, and Kern wrote the songs for piano while others like Max Steiner and Robert Russell Bennett did the orchestration and composed the incidental music). Here we have two scenes featuring Gershwin's instrumental work "Walking the Dog". During the second scene, there is a wonderful transition from "Walking the Dog" to the song "Beginner's Luck" (lyrics by Ira Gershwin), so I included it as well.
