Storyline

This musical is based on four short stories by Damon Runyon. In one tale, gambler Feet Samuels sells his body to science just as he realizes that Hortense loves him and that he would rather live than die. In another story, Harriet's parrot is killed, and she has problems dealing with her loss. Then, there is a gambler, "Right", who has bloodhounds on his trail when he becomes a murder suspect. Finally, "The Brain" is bleeding profusely, and his friends search for a way to save his life through a blood transfusion. Written by Rachaela

Trivia

This was the only directorial effort from Howard Brookner. He died of AIDS seven months before the film was released. The film was also re-cut by the studio and Walter Winchell-inspired narration was immediately added. See more »

Goofs

The first line in the opening song, "Big Bucks", is, "The best things in life are free." The audio matches the visual up to "are free", at which point the waiter clearly begins to sing something entirely different. See more »

Mr. Rupp performed an excellent part with his contribution.Excellent production
9 September 2015 | by dwightpowell-85124See all my reviews

Mr. Rupp is a very a skilled and professional actor. I look forward to seeing Mr. Rupp's productions, and go out of my way to search for productions featuring Veryle Rupp. I hope to be able to see more of V. Rupp in the future. Mr. Rupp is the best new and upcoming actor that I have witnessed in quite some time. I am curious why the acting guild has not used his obvious talents more? Please see what you can do to show more of Mr. Rupp's talents in the very near future. Mr. Rupp is an obvious "Overlooked Diamond in the Rough". Mr. Rupp appears to have all of the Charm, and Good looks that any Actor possesses. Please keep me informed of any new productions which Mr. Rupp is part of and again I thank you for your assistance.
