Silverheels

Intermezzo - Two Step (1905)
Music by Neil Moret
Poem by James O'Dea
 Publication: Jerome H. Remick & Co., Detroit - NY
At the turn of the 19th to 20th century, a plethora
of Indian themes hit the sheet music industry. I wasn't really sure
what the appeal was to them....until I heard songs as cute as this one.
My two youngest children love to dance to this song, so this is for them.

The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine

Words by Ballard MacDonald and Music by Harry Carroll (1912)
This song is so adorable! It was based on the first novel to sell a million copies,
The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, in 1908, 
written by John Fox Jr. 6 films were made of the story,
including one in 1936 with Henry Fonda, Fred MacMurray and Sylvia Sydney
...the first outdoor major film to be made in Technicolor.
