Directed by George Sidney • 1957 • United States
Starring Rita Hayworth, Frank Sinatra, Kim Novak
This frothy adaptation of the hit musical by John O’Hara, Richard Rodgers, and Lorenz Hart stars Frank Sinatra as Joey Evans, a talented but egotistical nightclub singer with a penchant for breaking hearts. Arriving penniless in San Francisco to reinvent himself once more, Joey is singing at a party when he recognizes his socialite host, Vera Simpson (Rita Hayworth), as a showgirl he once knew. Falling for the handsome singer, Vera sets him up with his own nightclub, only to watch him pursue Linda English (Kim Novak), a chorus girl who might be able to make Joey abandon his roguish ways.
