What a gem!
Does anyone know what this is from?
It's from the movie "The Five Pennies".
The Five Pennies, of course,referring to Red Nichols and His Five Pennies. Wonderful music from the late 20s and 30s. Swingin' and sophisticated. Kaye played Red.
Great music in this film, but the story is bunk.
When I was in 5th grade, 1960, we were given a 45 with two songs from this movie in band class. I don't know where these records came from. I think they were freebees to advertise the movie. Funny tho, this was Pine Bluffs Wyoming. A total of about 50 kids k-12. I had forgotten all about this until I saw this thread.
That was fantastic! Thanks for posting it.
Here's the CD http://www.amazon.com/Five-Pennies-Danny-Kaye/dp/B0001DMVY4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1196818039&sr=1-2
