*"I Thought I'd Do It" written by Hattie McDaniel.

As a teenager Hattie McDaniel began her singing career touring the West Coast vaudeville circuit with the "Spikes Brothers Comedy Stars." By the early 1920's she was a featured attraction with George Morrison's Orchestra a traveling band from Denver. In June of 1926 she made her debut recordings in Kansas City, but they were only moderately successful although she was a popular live performer.

Settling in Hollywood during the early 1930's Hattie began acting, almost always cast as a maid she is famously quoted as saying: "I'd rather make seven-hundred dollars a week playing a maid than earn seven dollars a day being a maid."
