Anyone know the name of the opening tune here. Can't find it in the credits and it features a young Al Bowlly on guitar.

That opening tune would be "Charlie Two Step".

FWIW, here's another version of it by Roanes Pennsylvanians.

FWIW, "Charlie Two Step" was written by Hoagy Charmichael.

I also like the version turned out by the Bozzies - full of the unique style variations you expect from them.

Thanks laughland for the links. If I were living during that time, I guess I would've preferred the
Roanes version for dancing because the Bozzies would have mesmerized me so I couldn't have danced.

I assume that the 'Two-Step' was a popular dance of the period. Can't seem to find anything definitive
that might concur with my assumption. I did find a reference that the two-stepdated back to the late
1800's and was danced to John Phillip Sousa's The Washington Post. Found thatrather interesting.

And I assume also, that the western/country two-step is kin to the above.
