Delicious (1931) is a Gershwin musical romantic comedy film starring Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell, directed by David Butler, and featuring music by George and Ira Gershwin, including the introduction of "New York Rhapsody" in an imaginative and elaborate set piece. Gaynor plays a Scottish girl emigrating by ship to America who runs afoul of the authorities and has to go on the run, falling in with a ragtag group of immigrant musicians in Manhattan. Gaynor and Farrell made almost a dozen films together, including Frank Borzage's classics Seventh Heaven (1927), Street Angel (1928), and Lucky Star (1929); Gaynor won the first Academy Award for Best Actress for the first two and F. W. Murnau's Sunrise.
