Storyline

Joey Evans is charming, handsome, funny, talented, and a first class, A-number-one heel. When Joey meets the former chorus girl ("She used to be 'Vera...with the Vanishing Veils'") and now rich widow Vera Simpson, the two lecherous souls seem made for each other. That is, until Linda English comes along. Linda is a "mouse on the line" and built like there's no tomorrow. But she's the typical good little girl from a good little home -- just the right ingredient to louse up Joey's cushy set up. Written by A.L.Beneteau <albl@inforamp.net>

Trivia

According to Kim Novak, Hermes Pan had worked out a show-stopping dream sequence (an homage to An American in Paris (1951)) with complicated dance moves-all of which was immediately thrown out by an imperious, obviously-irritated Frank Sinatra who stomped on the set and started cutting "business" left and right.

Goofs

After Linda sings, Mrs. Simpson talks to Joey with her left hand touching her chin. In the following shot her hands are on her handbag. In the same scene Joey rests his left hand on his leg, but between shots his left hand appears on the back of the chair beside him. See more »

Kim Novak is beautiful and that is all there is to say
6 May 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Close ups of the 24 year old Kim Novak left me breathless. Her beauty. Her face. What a face! Her body. She was (and still is) a great beauty. I was numb from her beauty when she sang the Valentine song. I liked this movie very much. The best descriptive word I can think of to describe Pal Joey is "delightful." Even the dog was cute. A nice, delightful movie, right out of the 1950's. I thought all the actors did a splendid job--the acting, dialog, the story was fine. All in all, Pal Joey is an enjoyable and fun movie. It is interesting to watch movies made in the 1950's. What a difference from today's films. I highly recommend Pal Joey.
