Sweet Music is a 1935 American musical film directed by Alfred E. Green, written by Jerry Wald, Carl Erickson and Warren Duff, and starring Rudy Vallée, Ann Dvorak, Ned Sparks, Helen Morgan, Robert Armstrong and Allen Jenkins. It was released by Warner Bros. on February 23, 1935.[1][2][3]


Bonnie Haydon (Ann Dvorak) is an aspiring star, who is often paired with Skip Houston (Rudy Vallée) by coincidence, much to her dismay. They taunt each other in a very screwball style, but overtime she learns that she has Houston to thank for her success.
