Harry Warren (1893-1981) and his writing partner Al Dubin were legendary tunesmiths, both as a team and as individuals. Between the two, their prodigious careers spanned six decades. Warren & Dubin wrote several Broadway musicals and revues, including White Lights (1927) and Streets of Paris (1939). They wrote songs for over two dozen Hollywood musicals, including Gold Diggers of Broadway (1929), Sally (1929), 42nd Street (1933), Moulin Rouge (1934), Dames (1934), Stars Over Broadway (1935), Streets of Paris (1939) and Stage Door Canteen (1943). Their combined output of songs can only be described as astonishing. Highlights include “Shuffle Off to Buffalo,” “You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me,” “Keep Young and Beautiful,” “We're In the Money,” “The Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “I Only Have Eyes for You,” and “Lullaby of Broadway.” Al Dubin, born in Switzerland in 1891, died in NY in 1945. Harry Warren was born in Brooklyn in 1893 and passed away in 1981. His first hit song was written in 1922, and he scored his last movie in 1962. His other collaborators included Ira Gershwin, Billy Rose, Joe Young, Gus Kahn, Arthur Freed, Johnny Mercer, Mack Gordon, Mort Dixon, Bud Green and Ralph Blane.
