“I’ll Buy You a Star” – A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Music: Arthur Schwartz   Lyrics: Dorothy Fields

The first permanent star on Hollywood Boulevard was completed on this day in 1960, although this is not the star being referred to in this sincere request for a second chance.  Crooned by the father of a working-class family struggling to get by at the beginning of the 20th century, the song closes out act one of this musical based on Betty Smith’s enormously successful autobiographical novel.
