That’s right! It’s your lucky day with not one, but two posts in one day! The reason for this being, it is, in fact, Frank Thursday!
Last week my roommates and I invited two guys from a neighboring apartment that we go to church with to come over and bask in the glorious and wonderful excitement that is Frank Thursday. We watched Robin and the 7 Hoods (1964). Not only is this movie and musical and a comedy, it also has Frank, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Bing Crosby in it. To say the very least: it is earth shattering!
The story is set in Chicago during Prohibition. Frank plays the character of Robbo, a wealthy bootlegger who gets tied up in basically a gang war with another bootlegger than turns out into a completely hilarious and wild ride. Through their competition to basically see who can kill each other first and come out on top, we are introduced to various other characters and, of course, wonderful musical numbers. A few of which include the song Frank sings, My Kind of Town, and the number which Frank, Dean Martin, and Bing Crosby all sing together. Yes, indeed, they do sing a song together. What I want to know is why didn’t the world
just end right there? Seriously! That is seriously the greatest combination ever conceivable by man in one place. But, that’s an argument for a different time.
Anyway, the movie is great and very funny. It has a lot of trivia that goes along with the making of, which I would encourage you to research if you’re in the mood. Watch it and love it, because you will!
You’ve either got or you haven’t got style! (got or you haven’t got, style!) If you’ve got it you stand out a mile!
