Set in the 1920s, it concerns the exploits of Adam Fenwick-Symes, an impoverished novelist who becomes a newspaper gossip columnist on the Daily Excess so he can afford to marry his aristocratic fiancee.

He is soon thrown headlong into the frantic, jazz-fevered social whirl of endless parties, treasure hunts, sports car races and other empty and hedonistic pursuits which keep London's Bright Young Things amused.

But as they search furiously for new and ever more exciting sensations, the cracks begin to show in the glittering façade.

This was another tune with lyrics by Collie Knox and was possibly a follow-up to “ When the Lovebird Leaves the Nest ” . I cannot find any evidence that this tune made it on to record but it was considered worthy of inclusion in Feldman’s 33rd  Song and Dance album (a book of sheet music, not a disc) along with “Why Am I Blue?”.  These music publishers’ booklets were the “Now That’s What I Call Music” of their day. Number 33 (“Complete Words & Music with Tonic Sol-Fa Setting and Ukulele Accompaniment”) consisted of this perfect snapshot of late twenties “pop”,

“Under the Moon (Fox-trot) – I ain’t that Kind of a Baby (Fox-trot) – Why am I Blue?

The Boulevard Haussmann runs for more than two and a half kilometres from the eighth to the ninth arrondissement. It is one of the wide tree-lined Parisian boulevards created by Baron Haussmann during the renovation of Paris inspired by Napoleon III.

The Musée Jacquemart-André is located at no. 158 Boulevard Haussmann. Édouard André, descendant of a banking family, devoted his considerable fortune to buying works of art. He married Nélie Jacquemart, a well-known society painter. The couple amassed one of the finest collections of Italian art in France. When André died, his wife completed the decoration of the Italian Museum. Faithful to the plan agreed with her husband, she bequeathed the magnificent collections to the Institut de France.

The Pillars of Hercules is the ancient name given to the mountains that flank the entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar (Gibraltar in Europe and Monte Hacho in Africa). It has its origin in Greek mythology. To accomplish his tenth labour, Hercules had to journey to the end of the world. Eurystheus ordered the hero to bring him the Cattle of Geryon. On his way to the island of Erytheia, Hercules had to cross the massive mountain that was once Atlas. Instead of climbing the obstacle, he decided to use his strength to smash it. Hercules split it in half using his indestructible mace or club. By doing so, he connected the Atlantic with the Mediterranean and formed the Strait of Gibraltar.
