This movie is a must see. Loosely based on the life of Chet Baker. From dirt poor to idle rich. It has just absolutely everything. Great sets and costumes. An hysterical performance by Susan Kohner of Sarah Jane fame from Imitation of Life. And if that wasn't enough, Miss Pearl Bailey as the terminally ill Ruby Jones sings her heart out.
