With a score by Cole Porter and a cast headed by William Gaxton & Victor Moore, stars of  Porter’s recent classic “Anything Goes”, it seemed as though there was no way the 1938 production “Leave It To Me” could fail on Broadway. And, in fact, it didn’t! Also starring Sophie Tucker and Tamara Drasin, the show concerned a timid businessman who suddenly finds himself appointed ambassador to the Soviet Union! – Loaded with topical humor, including a scene wherein Victor Moore kicks Nazi Germany’s ambassador right in the stomach, “Leave It To Me” was also heavy with future legends in supporting roles: Stealing the entire production performing the song that would make her a star overnite, Mary Martin sang Porter’s “My Heart Belongs To Daddy” in a scene that also featured the even LESSER-known Gene Kelly! And Tamara introduced “Get Out Of Town”, a torchy,  after-hours standard-to-be, performed for us now by Minnesota’s Voice Connie Evingson:
