  • The Penguin Dictionary Of Modern Quotations gives the impression that Coward coined this phrase, but Mary Pickford starred in a film called The Poor Little Rich Girl in 1917. The Noël Coward song was written for the 1925 revue On With The Dance, and is the third song in the show. According to the Noël Coward Society, in 2009, it ranked among his ten most popular songs. >>
