Notes: ~ The song "You Were Meant for Me" was introduced by Charles King in the 1929 Hollywood musical "The Broadway Melody" and then dubbed his voice on the soundtrack for "Hollywood Revue of 1929." Frank Morgan performed the song in the 1940 Motion Picture Musical "Hullabaloo" as did Dan Dailey in the 1948 Motion Picture Musical "You Were Meant For Me" and Gene Kelly with Debbie Reynolds in the 1952 Motion Picture Musical "Singin' in the Rain."
