Al HOFFMAN (1902--1960) - composer of this great American hit of 1940s. He was a songwriter in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, usually co-writing with others. Hoffman was born in Minsk - formerly Poland, now Belarus. His family -- like many other Jewish families living in Russia occupied territories - emigrated to the US. They lived in Seattle, Washington, and when he graduated from high school, he started his own band, playing the drums. In 1928 Al moved to New York City to pursue his music career. Though he continued playing the drums in night club bands and selling bagels door-to-door on Broadway, he began writing songs, collaborating with such other songwriters as Leon Carr, Leo Corday, Mann Curtis, Mack David, Al Goodhart, Walter Kent, Sammy Lerner, Jerry Livingston, Bob Merrill or Ed Nelson.

In 1934 he moved to London to work on stage productions and movies, co-writing the hit songs "She Shall Have Music" and "Everything Stops For Tea". He returned to the U.S. three years later. His best kown songs are "Heartaches" (1931), "Auf Wiedersehen, My Dear" (1932), and "I Saw Stars" (1934).
