Joker Is Wild, The (1957) -- (Movie Clip) All The Way
The movie is maybe unfairly known mostly for this song, the Academy Award-winning instant classic by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen, Sinatra as showman Joe E. Brown in 1920's Chicago, threatened by a gangster (Leonard Graves), reassuring pal Eddie Albert, in The Joker Is Wild, 1957.>

HOT BLOOD (1956)
gypsy nonsense in full blown color....ridiculous plot meets hammy acting a total embarrassment for director Nicholas Ray & stage actor Luther Adler.... par-for-the-course for Cornell Wilde & Jane Russell... http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/78417/Hot-Blood/ 1.5 stars from Maltin et al....


"Geechy Joe" from Stormy Weather
1943. Cab Calloway makes an entrance as his Orchestra plays the song. *As you can tell by the song title, it is clearly dated. I did not post this to offend anyone native to South Carolina and the Gullao Islands.*
