Wake Up and Live is a 1937 Fox musical film directed by Sidney Lanfield and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck. The movie stars Walter Winchell, Ben Bernie and Alice Faye and was based upon the self-help bestseller by Dorothea Brande. The film was followed by Love and Hisses (1937).



"There's a Lull in My Life", which has become a jazz standard, was written for Alice Faye by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel. It was released as a single and became her only major hit record.[1] The film also featured the song, "Never in a Million Years".
