"These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)" is a standard with words by Eric Maschwitz and
music by Jack Strachey. The name of an American, Harry Link, sometimes appears as a
co-writer, but his input was probably limited to changes to suit the US market. It is one
of a group of 'Mayfair Songs', like "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square". Maschwitz
wrote the song under his pen name, Holt Marvell. The copyright was lodged in 1936 and it
was written for Joan Carr for a late-evening review broadcast by the BBC. Maschwitz was
romantically linked to the Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong while working in
Hollywood, and the lyrics of "These Foolish Things" are evocative of his longing for her
after they parted and he returned to England.
