"Thanks for the Memory" Sheet Music
I recently purchased sheet music for the song "Thanks for the Memory". I purchased it because of the song significance and the fact that there are cartoon caricatures of Bob Hope and W.C. Fields as well as Ben Blue and Martha Raye.
The reason for this song was "The Big Broadcast of 1938" which starred all of the above-mentioned people as well as Dorothy Lamour and Shirley Ross.
It turned out to be Bob Hope's first feature film and the song ended up becoming his signature tune. It also turned out to be the last film Fields did for Paramount as he moved over to Universal after this.
Sorry for the cut image, but the original sheet music is slightly larger than 11"x17".
