17 Apr 1935 — 4/17/35: Irving Berlin, famed composer who has just completed the score for RKO-radio’s new musical, “Top hat,” starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, finds the long lost chord on his piano but doesn’t think it will fit a popular song. In fact, he doesn’t think, to judge by his expression, it will fit anything. — Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS
