Description
Cornetist and bandleader Pete Kelly (Jack Webb) has a sweet gig performing nightly at one of Kansas City's top speakeasies until vicious gangster Fran McCarg (Edmond O'Brien) tries to extort money from the band. When Kelly resists, McCarg's thugs kill his drummer and force Kelly to take on McCarg's alcoholic girlfriend Rose (singer Peggy Lee in an Oscar-nominated performance) as the band's singer. Kelly's only solace is a gin-swilling heiress—and groupie—played by Janet Leigh. A young Lee Marvin and Martin Milner are convincing as Kelly's hot-headed sidemen, but Ella Fitzgerald leaves the biggest impression in this 1955 film with performances of "Hard Hearted Hannah" and the title song.
