Trivia

Ella Fitzgerald's piano playing was ghosted by Cliff Smalls. Fitzgerald also recorded the songs "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," "Misty" and "Who's Sorry Now" but they weren't used in the film. Fitzgerald's album of music from the film was unavailable for years but has since been issued on CD under the title "The Intimate Ella." See more »

I Wish I Could find this little gem on DVD or Video!
6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by all of the comments on this film. I haven't seen it for many, many, years, probably 15 or more. However, I remember it well and had believed for a long time that I was the only one who knew of it's existence. *laughing* This is one of my favorite Shelley Winters movies. And of course Miss Ella Fitzgerald was an added treat. I first saw it when I was about 15 (mid-1970s), so you can imagine what an impact it had on me. I'd had a crush on James Darren from his role in the television series "The Time Tunnel". I wish I could find it on video or DVD somewhere; but that's unlikely. I was just looking over the credits and saw a couple of familiar names; Bernie Hamilton(who starred in a lot of the so-called Blaxploitation films of the seventies) and Jeanne Cooper,whom I adored in the seventies as Mrs. Chancellor in the popular soap, "The Young and the Restless". Try as I might, I cannot remember them in the film. Which is why it is a must I see it again! *Laughing* I'll be armed with "TVio" and "VCR" the next time it makes it's appearance on cable....TCM are you listening???!! Miss "P"
