you do something to me song from night and day.Night and Day is a 1946 Technicolor Warner Bros. biographical film of the life of American composer and songwriter Cole Porter. It was directed by Michael Curtiz and produced by Arthur Schwartz, with Jack L. Warner as executive producer. The screenplay was by Charles Hoffman, Leo Townsend and William Bowers.

The music score by Ray Heindorf and Max Steiner was nominated for an Academy Award. The film features several of the best-known Porter songs, including the title song, “Night and Day”, “Begin the Beguine” and “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”.

The film stars Cary Grant as Cole Porter and Alexis Smith as Linda Lee Porter, his wife of 35 years. Monty Woolley and Mary Martin appear as themselves, and the rest of the cast includes Jane Wyman, Eve Arden, Alan Hale, Dorothy Malone, Donald Woods, and Ginny Simms.

The film is a highly fictionalized and sanitized version of Cole Porter’s life, leaving out amongst other things references to his bisexuality. A later film biography of Porter, the 2004 De-Lovely with Kevin Kline, dealt more frankly with his sexuality
