By Strauss!



Of course this was written about Johann Strauss but Ken Russell let the credits roll to Seven Veils with this Ella Fitzgerald classic-while HE conducts!6:25

This charming Gershwin tune can also be seen performed by Gene Kelly and Oscar Levant in Minnelli's 1951 film "An American in Paris."
