Trivia & History

Based on the Ian Hay and P. G. Wodehouse play, 'A Damsel in Distress', which was based on the novel by P. G. Wodehouse.

The play, 'Damsel in Distress', was also the basis for the 1937 RKO film with score by George and Ira Gershwin (screenplay by P. G. Wodehouse, Ernest Pagano and S. K. Lauren). REACHING FOR THE MOON is based on a somewhat different adaptation of the Wodehouse novel.

'Put Me to the Test' was used in the 1937 film only in the instrumental version. The version used in REACHING FOR THE MOON is its first complete performance.
