He penned the lines. Walter Donaldson, George Gershwin and others provided the music. Yet there was a more vital partner in lyricist Gus Kahn's life: Grace LeBoy Kahn, who put the love into his love songs.  Doris Day and Danny Thomas are the Kahns in this affectionate musical, one of 1952's top box-office hits. The title song, "It Had to Be You," "Makin' Whoopee" and "Love Me or Leave Me" lead a 23-song cavalcade (in all, he co-wrote some 800 tunes) that propels this story of Kahn's life from the day he walked into a music publishing house to public triumphs, private failures, career decline and comeback. Directed by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), this is a winning tribute to the talented guy who put into song what lovers feel in their hearts.
