Great Music Film
80 minutes of some of the best musicians and singers around, including: Frankie Laine, Kay Starr, The Nat Cole Trio, Gene Krupa, Jimmy Dorsey, Charlie Barnett, Jack Smith and more. The story about two carhops competing in a "name that tune" radio contest serves as a pleasant link between songs.
Frankie Laine sings his million seller, "On The Sunny Side Of The Street," Kay Starr scores with "I'm The Loneliest Girl In Town," and Jerome Courtland (the male carhop) serves up a beautiful recording of "It's A Blue World." For big band fans there's a killer jam session with Jimmy Dorsey, Pee Wee Hunt, Charlie Barnett and Jan Garber.
The script is witty and fast-paced and the fun never lags.
