The Five Pennies

Danny Kaye cuts loose with his trademark musical clowing with Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong plays his horn and croons in that famed gargling-grantie voice. Big Band icons Bob Crosby, Ray Anthony amd Shelly Mame join the fun. Barbara Bel Geddes (decades before Dallas) and debuting teen Tuesday Weld add to the excellent performances in The Five Pennies, the success-tempered-with-tears biopic of jazz great Loring "Red" Nichols (portrayed by Kaye).

Superb too, as the more than 20 tunes peppered throughout the film. Best of all: Satchmo-Kaye "When The Saints Go Marching In" duet with the legends scat singing a list of muisc-world saints and add a little "Freres Jacques" too!
