This is a sixteen minute excerpt from the film 'The Gay Divorcee' and is properly titled 'The Continental'. The song won the first ever 'Best Original Song' Oscar (1934) and was written by Con Conrad & Herb Magidson. During the excerpt the song is sung first by Ginger Rigers then by Fred Astaire. After a dance interlude it is then sung by Erik Rhodes and finally by Lillian Miles.
Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall
