Angela Lansbury and chorus perform “How’d You Like to Spoon With Me” by Jerome Kern, 1905, in the star-studded bio-pic of Kern, Till the Clouds Roll By, 1946. The film features lavish renditions of famous songs from his musicals, performed by MGM’s stable of musical stars of the time.
The song “How’d You Like to Spoon With Me?” was one of Kern’s very early efforts. He was working in London at the time and was hired by a theater impresario to write tunes that could be interpolated into Broadway versions of London shows. This song was used in The Earl and the Girl when the show transferred to Chicago and New York in 1905.
