Quotes

Paul Rothstein: [while Alice scrubs the floors] So, where is everybody?
Alice: [rises from the floor and moves to the sink] Your mother went shopping.
Paul Rothstein: [moves forward, wrapping his arms around Alice's waist] Alone at last.
Alice: [recoiling from his touch] Boy, quit! And watch where you're walking. I just scrubbed this.
Paul Rothstein: Alice, I like you. I really like you.
Alice: What would your mother do if she was on the other side of that door listening? Probably die. I don't know why you keep bothering me.
Paul Rothstein: Because I like you. And it doesn't matter...

I have the movie on DVD
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a televised copy of the 1992 "Stompin at the Savoy" broadcast on DVD. If you are able to provide me with your email address, I will send you more info on obtaining a copy. If you go on Ebay and enter Stompin at the Savoy, you will end up viewing a totally different jazz tape with the same title, and not the movie which features Vanessa Williams. As far as I know, this movie has not been made available for DVD or VHS. I just happened to be lucky enough to record it when it first aired. I have now transfered it over to DVD. It would be nice to see this movie re-televised again, because so many people have missed out on it the first time it aired.
