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.*
