Hey, piano player.
Yes, Mr. Braden.
Tonight try to play the notes the way that they were written.
I'll use both hands.
And if your pal Johnny is late again, I hope he can dance with a broken leg.
That's what I like about you, boss. Always ready with a pat on the back.

Frankie and Johnny wasn't half bad as Elvis pictures go- which means it was half- watchable as a movie and not just a typical kitchy vehicle to ogle the King. The musical performances we're good and the sets and costumes interesting-the high point in the film is the last performance of Frankie and Johnny--Elvis actually comes off pretty suave at times as a river boat gambler and his character played well off a nubile, young Donna Douglas. Harry Morgan does a good job as Elvis' older, more wary sidekick and the rest of the cast work well and don't detract/subtract from the main action which is of course- Elvis. Not a bad way to kill an afternoon or round off an evening of insomnia.
