Great Singer, reknowned composer, Peggy lee had a chance to really act and act she did in Pete Kellys Blues earning her an Oscar nomination and many fans...She died today (1/22/02), and the world is a lot less brighter.. This is one of the few glimpses we get to see her in her heydey, beautiful, young and talented... This film should be treasured for that alone plus some fine singing by not only Peg, but the great Ella Fitzgerald... for these reasons alone this flick is worth seeing buying and reissuing/ contrived maybe, poorly directed possibly but to see Peggy Lee on film singing and emoting, and earning an Oscar nom., that alone is worth the price/ also look for an ingenue, Jayne mansfield in the chorus... thank you Jack Webb also
