My Dreams Are Gone With the Wind (1937)

This clip from the 1937 film The Awful Truth features two different renditions of the song "My Dreams Are Gone With the Wind". In the first scene, Dixie Belle Lee, played by Joyce Compton, is Cary Grant's nightclub singer girlfriend. She sings the song and her skirt blows up with every lyrical mention of a breeze. In the second scene, Lucy Warriner (Irene Dunn) does her Dixie Belle Lee impersonation while performing the tune.
