as Marilyn Miller singing "Who?" from 'Sunny' in 'Till the Clouds Roll By' (1946)

'"Who?"' (1925) is a popular song (sometimes written as "Who (Stole My Heart Away)?") written for the Broadway musical 'Sunny' by Jerome Kern, Otto Harbach and Oscar Hammerstein II. The song was also featured in the film version of 'Sunny' (1930) starring Marilyn Miller.

George Olsen and His Orchestra scored a major hit with their 1925 recording of the song. Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra with vocalist Jack Leonard had a hit with it in the late 1930s; their arrangement was patterned after Dorsey's 1937 recording of "Marie". Judy Garland sang the song in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer biopic 'Till the Clouds Roll By' (1946), loosely based on the life of Jerome Kern.
