The Synopsis for Pal Joey (1957) 720p

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.

The Reviews for Pal Joey (1957) 720p

Ring-a-ding Role for FrankReviewed byharidam0Vote: 8/10

Talk about a perfect cast. This film brings together all the right folk to realize Rodgers and Hart's swinging musical for the screen.

Firstly, here's a role Sinatra's born to play. Made during the period of his greatest album recordings, like "Song for Swinging Lovers," his voice, manner and attitude is perfect for George Abbott's A-1 heel.

His singing and acting are on the ball here, and Sinatra throws himself into the part with cool abandonment.

Secondly, Rita Hayworth (reportedly replacing Marlene Dietrich) turns in a dazzling performance. Wise, worldly, and sophisticated, her "former stripper" number's a knockout.

Thirdly, Kim Novak enjoys one of her best ever roles. Often in other films she acts as though the camera's hurting her. Here, she uses her discomfort to advantage, making for a fascinating persona. (Often one can see the vague, distant and ethereal qualities Alfred Hitchcock must have spotted to cast her in his haunting "Vertigo.")

Behind the scenes is Sinatra's favorite music director/arranger/conductor Nelson Riddle. Jean Louis designs some fabulous gowns for the ladies, and George Sidney's direction and Hermes Pan's choreography likewise hit the bull's eye.

In short, this "Pal Joey's" a real gasser.

Kim Novak is beautiful and that is all there is to sayReviewed byScoval71Vote: 7/10

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.

One of the real gems of Sinatra's movie career!Reviewed byolblueeyes-1Vote: 10/10

Frank Sinatra's movie career was peppered with great pictures; On the Town, Guys and Dolls, From Here To Eternity, Oceans 11 and so on and so forth. Pal Joey is without doubt, up there with the best of them.

The movie centers around Joey Evans, a womanizing nightclub singer who finds himself forced to leave Chicago (literally) and start over in San Francisco. His persistence lands him a spot in the Barbary Coast Club, and while trying to lure a wealthy widow (Rita Hayworth) to the club, he plans to land a posh joint of his own.

Frank's portrayal of Joey in this movie is wonderfully entertaining; from his Joey-isms ("Who's the mouse with the built?"), to the marvelous list of Rodgers and Hart songs he performs. Rita Hayworth may have been given top billing by Sinatra, but there is no doubt as to who the star is, it's Sinatra's show all the way.

Sinatra's other leading lady in the picture is the young and beautiful Kim Novak, who plays hard-to-get Linda English, a dancer/singer at the Barbary Coast who is one of the few women who seems to be able to resist his charms.

The songs, as I mentioned are great, and include the legendary 'The Lady Is A Tramp', which is a treasure in itself. This is not the actual studio recording of the song, but one recorded for the movie (as all the songs are), and is in my opinion, far superior to it's mainstream counterpart. Joey is not the only one to sing either as both Novak and Hayworth's characters have numbers also, albeit dubbed by other vocalists, unlike Sinatra.

The DVD version of this film looks fantastic considering the age of the picture, containing both anamorphic widescreen and full screen versions. The sound also, while only in 2 channel mono, is lively and clear.

For entertainment value, I cannot recommend this movie enough. Even if you are initially put-off by its labelling as a musical, you will not be disappointed. It's a gasser!
