Lyrics ,Music:Maceo Pinkard ,Doris Tauber ,William G. Tracey
The song was publishe 1930.
While Maceo Pinkard, Doris Tauber and William G. Tracey are given equal credit for “Them There Eyes,” published in 1930, it is likely that composers Pinkard and Tauber wrote the music and Tracey supplied the lyric. This was the biggest hit for Tracey and for Tauber, who also wrote “Drinkin’ Again” with lyricist Johnny Mercer. Pinkard, a bandleader and publisher, had several hits to his credit including “Sugar” and “Sweet Georgia Brown.”
“Them There Eyes” was introduced by the Gus Arnheim Orchestra and appeared in the 1931 film Let’s Do Things, a comedy starring Zazu Pitts and Thelma Todd. The two young women sang the song in a music store with a group of male customers, one of whom was singer/actor Donald Novis. Bing Crosby recorded it with the Rhythm Boys in 1931 and it charted for five weeks, rising to number seven. Duke Ellington also recorded it in 1931.
