Synopsis

It’s a little known fact that many popular music classics of the Tin Pan Alley era were written by women. But between 1920 and 1949, 178 women joined ASCAP; and Dorothy Fields, Kay Swift, Dana Suesse and Ann Ronell were among the most influential songwriters of the time.

American Masters pays tribute to these overlooked artists of the Golden Age of songwriting with “Yours for a Song: The Women of Tin Pan Alley.” Hosted by Tony-award winner and renowned vocalist Betty Buckley, this inspiring documentary effectively profiles the lives and work of these women with interviews, archival footage, motion picture clips, rarely seen photographs and interpretations of their songs by contemporary performers.
