That's the c. 1947 Decca release in the trailer

by Barb Wascher

Hoagy doesn't sing -- or whistle -- in the '33 Victor, but he does recreate that marvelous original solo from 1927:

The one we hear in the trailer was recorded in 1942. Fancy stuff about matrix numbers and whatnot, as well as a link to listen to the recording, is here (again, scroll down, this time to the end of the page):

Of course, they're both wonderful recordings. And they will never, ever go out of style.
