He also worked as a part-time employee for the Hal Roach film studio, composing countless background themes that became associated with such Roach comedy series as Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang, ZaSu Pitts and Thelma Todd, and Charley Chase. One of his compositions for the 1930 Our Gang 1930 short Teacher's Pet, "Good Old Days," became the theme song of the series.

His 1930 song "Beautiful Lady" was used as the theme song for the Pitts and Todd films. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
