Gershwin ventured again into the realm of satirical Americana when in 1923 he provided music for the western comedy picture The Sunshine Trail. In early 1923, he also wrote some numbers for a Sigmund Romber-Harold Atteridge revue produced by the Shuberts at the Winter Garden, namely, The Dancing Girl. Following the Scandals, Gershwin wrote a few songs for another two shows, Little Miss Bluebeard and the Nifties of 1923. Meanwhile, Sweet Little Devil garnered excellent notices in Boston and Providence, and overwhelmingly good reviews in New York.
