That movie, starring Nat King Cole, is on tv right now. It is a hell of a movie. Good music and some exceptionally beautiful women.

I'm listening; I'm listening. Fantastic. St. Louis Blues with a symphony orchestra. Fabulous. The conductor said what I have always known. the only pure art form in America.

Thanks for getting up, gus. I don't get that channel. Getting up is good for the circulation ~ you can thank me later.

I'm not sure which one you're talking about, Letty, but the one earlier in the movie, who owned the bar, was one of the most eye-pleasing creatures I have ever laid my eyes upon. And her voice was like oil sliding down a window pane -- smooth and flawless.

gus, I just caught the last of the movie, but she sang St. Louis Blues right before Nat did.

JB got you up? Music does that for me. Razz

Incidentally, that gal was Eartha Kitt, I think. I would recognize that vibrato anywhere.

Haven't seen that film for over thirty years. It wasn't a big hit and was realeased right in the era of CinemaScope, Stereophonic, Technicolor movies. Absolutely worth seeing again, though. Don't remember if it was wide screen but the sound was mono:

For jazz fans like myself, what a cast!!!! Cool

Well, I got it right, Mr. Wizard. I have never seen the movie, and only caught the last few minutes, but the symphony orchestra was fantastic. What a cast. Thanks.
