Paul Lindemeyer says:

This might be the least sentimental rendition of the tune on record. For that reason alone, it's well worth having. Sort of a talisman of jadedness and innocence lost all at once – and it don't get any more 1939 than that.

Barry I. Grauman says:

Recorded on July 12, 1939- a month before the film's world premiere in New York.
