VIDEO | It Was So Beautiful, 1932

Ruth Etting sings It Was So Beautiful, which charted at #13 in 1932. The name of the film is omitted from the YouTube listing, but based on the costumes, the year, and the fact that it was produced by Vidafone, it’s most likely from A Modern Cinderella.

    Hey…wouldn’t it be great for you to come to David City, have an art show of your wonderful talents at the church where Ruth was baptized and grew up in?
    We still have hymnals which were donated by Ruth in memeory of her father Alfred.
    Then have a concert in her memory, there is a lady with the same first name from David City who sings like Ruth Etting and her name is Ruth , also…She is an artist, also.
    Hope to hear from you , we’d be interested in sponsering the event ….
    please contact me at this email, please Pastor Jack
