Baby it’s Cold Outside day 02

The duet was written by Frank Loesser Loesser in 1944 and premiered the song with his wife at their Navarro Hotel housewarming party. Then in 194 Loesser sold the song rights to MGM, which inserted the song into its 1949 motion picture, Neptune’s Daughter. The film featured two performances of the song: one by Ricardo Montalbán and Esther Williams and the other by Red Skelton and Betty Garrett. In the second version the roles of the mouse and the Wolf are reversed. These performances earned Loesser an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
