The Cochran revue was to be called One Dam Thing After Another. It would star Edythe Baker, Mimi Crawford, Douglas Byng, Morris Harvey, Max Wall, Sonnie Hale, and Jessie Matthews, a discovery of Cochran's. Jessie was to become one of Britain's best-loved stars. Getting a part in Cochran's Music Box Revue had been her first big break. Jessie Matthews went on to make her mark on the London stage in Andre Chariot's Revue of 1926, later accompanying the show to New York. The revue ran only 138 performances in America, and, after a brief appearance in the Earl Carroll Vanities in January 1927, she returned to England. C. B. Cochran remembered her and put her tinder contract. As they began work, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart decided to dust off a few of their earlier songs, reasoning that although some of them had already been aired in the States, they would be fresh to British ears.
