Known and loved as "The Street Singer" during the 1930s, singer Arthur Tracy's success on the radio translated to a sporadic film career that began with the star-studded Bing Crosby musical The Big Broadcast (1932). In the film, he sang "Here Lies Love" which soon afterward became a major hit. When Tracy went to England for a tour, he stayed long enough to appear in four films, including Herbert Wilcox's Limelight and in The Street Singer (both 1937). In the 1980s, his rendition of "Pennies From Heaven" was used as the theme for Steve Martin's version of the musical drama. The song briefly revived his dormant career and led Tracy to take a small role in Crossing Delancey (1988). Tracy passed away at the age of 98 in New York's Mount Sinai Hospital.
