Songs featured in the 1950 American musical film biography of the Tin Pan Alley songwriting partnership of composers Bert Kalmar & Harry Ruby.

Fred Astaire plays vaudeville dancer Bert Kalmar, whose act with Jessie Brown (Vera-Ellen) ends due to a backstage accident.

While he is in rehab, he meets composer Harry Ruby (Red Skelton) and the two discover a knack for writing Tin Pan Alley songs, then Broadway shows, together.

The movie features many of the old Kalmar & Ruby songs such as "Who's Sorry Now"; "Thinking of You"; "Nevertheless", "I Wanna Be Loved by You" and the title tune "Three Little Words".

Unusually for Hollywood songwriting biographies of this period, two of the songs, "Thinking of You" and "Nevertheless", became major hits on the film's release, reaching first and second place respectively, in the U.S. charts. "So Long, OO-Long"

Kalmar and Ruby's 1920 oriental-themed ditty is performed by Astaire and Skelton.
