    This wonderful song also appeared in a film called Let Him Have it (1992- based on a true story & directed by Peter Medak/starring Christopher Eccleston & Paul Reynolds). As the film was set in 1951-3, the main character Derek Bentley (played by Christopher Eccleston) kept playing it. It was the first record he bought and he was entranced by her voice.
    I first heard this song back in the 90′s & am very happy to have found it on YouTube. Wonderful, powerful voice & such a classy looking lady.

    I had the privilege meeting Miss Starr around 1992, and she was the kindest, most gracious host ever! We laughed and chatted about many things, and it was a dream come true! She can still belt out a song. Truly elegant, Miss Starr is truly a star! Thank you for this great post- I appreciate it.
