This chapter considers Kay Swift's work for the American Ballet of New York and the Radio City Music Hall. It explains that after Fine and Dandy, Swift became inactive because her collaboration and her relationship with her husband collapsed after he was appointed financial adviser to President Franklin Roosevelt. It also discusses Swift's divorce, her relationship with composer George Gershwin, and her collaboration with him in the opera Porgy and Bess.
