It was used in the 1968 movie The Night They Raided Minsky's but I don't think it was original to the movie. I think it was period, because I've heard it used in other movies set in the '20s and Bob Hope sang it (it has lyrics, though the only one I remember has to do with a top hat and being an aristocrat [no, it's not that "The Aristocrats" act]) in a '20s themed sketch in one of his specials a thousand years ago.

If this doesn't open automatically to the right section, it starts about 2:25 (http://youtu.be/g9V0ppNdBsw?t=2m25s) and plays until about 3:08.

Found it. It was written for the movie (Robards sings it), but is inspired by other '20s songs so probably wasn't in other movies.
