Hospital patients in the 1920s sing "I Won't Dance," written by Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein II, and Otto Harbach for the London-produced musical THREE SISTERS. The lyric was subsequently re-written by Dorothy Fields for the film adaptation of Roberta (1935). The song was actually written in 1934.
