This chapter describes the success of Kay Swift's musical Fine and Dandy, which opened on September 23, 1930 at Erlanger's Theater. It explains that the musical was a collaboration between Swift and her husband who was using the penname Paul James and that it was the first Broadway musical whose score was written entirely by a woman. It provides a synopsis and describes the songs featured in the musical. This chapter also considers Swift's membership in the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) in 1931.
