|Title||:||Great Depression Music: I'm Through With Love, 1931|
Donald Voorhees (1903, Allentown, Pennsylvania--1989, New Jersey) was an American composer and conductor. From 1935 to 1941, and from 1949 to 1953 Voorhees was the musical director and conductor for the radio and television show, Cavalcade of America. Voorhees also served as conductor of the Bell Telephone Hour orchestra for 26 years, from its first broadcasts on radio in 1942 until its final television episode in 1968. He was also the first conductor of the Allentown Symphony Orchestra.
„I'm Through With Love" was a hit song of 1931, made immortal by Marilyn Monroe's interpretation in Billy Wilder's comedy „Some Like It Hot" (1959). The couple of views in my clip show the historical Coronado Hotel, San Diego, where the movie was made.
