One of Those Songs

Song lyrics to One of Those Songs, Songwriters: Alain Albert Boublil, Robert Fourrey, Gerard Calvi

Well, this is one of those songs that you hear now and then,
You don’t know just where and you don’t know just when.
It’s one of those songs that are over and then,
It’s one of those songs that start playin’ again.

Stephen Boyd: What is a circus? What does it mean?
Is it a banjo? Or a tambourine?
Is it a phony snake charmer routine?

Synopsis of It Happened in Brooklyn

It Happened in Brooklyn (1947) starring Frank Sinatra, Kathryn Grayson, Peter Lawford, Jimmy Durante, Gloria Grahame“Everybody is miserable in Brooklyn!” declares Anne Fielding, a pretty music teacher. It may start out that way, but Frank Sinatra, Kathryn Grayson, Jimmy Durante, and Peter Lawford bring plenty of music, romance, and laughter to New York’s most colorful borough. Anne (Grayson) has to teach music because her opera career started off on the wrong note. Army private Dannie Miller (Sinatra) is too shy to let anyone hear him sing. Jamie, an English duke’s grandson (Lawford), is too stuffy to fit in. And Nick, the janitor (Durante), has never known love. But they all discover anything is possible if they believe in each other and the spirit of Brooklyn.

It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

Review of It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World starring Spencer Tracy, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Phil Silvers, Jonathan Winters,

 

It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World is a manic, hilarious, slapstick movie that starred some of the greatest movie clowns of their time — and more cameos than you can shake a stick at.   The basic plot involves a dying thief (Jimmy Durante) who tells a small group of bystanders where to find the hidden money from his last bank job.   These individuals then embark on a treasure hunt of sorts, and the madcap fun begins!   The initially small group grows, until nearly a dozen people are looking for the treasure, The movie quickly turns into a slapstick farce, as the various people (the funniest comedians and film clowns of their time) are competing to be the first to the location.   In addition, virtually every other major comedian or clown puts in a cameo appearance in the film.
