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 chorus 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.

According to Kim Novak

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. See more
In the opening scene, Joey is escorted onto a train leaving town. Spenger's Grotto is visible in the background, placing this in W Berkeley (though the police car reads "Gold City.") The train is headed north. Next, we see Joey exiting the train heading towards the "Ferry to SF" which would've been one of the Oakland stations, which is south of Berkeley. See more

Why does it feel so bad?
It only feels so bad in the morning cause it feels so good the night before.
