SYNOPSIS: Roaring '20s songstress Ruth Etting had everything - the looks, the wiles, the smokey jazz voice, the 'it'. She aslo had Chicago racketeer Martin 'The Gimp' Snyder who, even as he propelled her career, afflicted her. Laced with Doris Day's vibrant performances of songs from the era, this 1955 Academy Award winner (Best Motion Picture Story) is based on the tough-minded tale of Etting's life with the man who boosted her career with strong-arm tactics and smothered her in an obsessive grip she escaped at great peril. As Snyder, James Cagney earned one of the film's six Oscar nomnations. Day's Etting was a career-best dramatic performance, bringing acclaim from critics and protest letters from fans unprepared for the departure from her traditionally sunny roles.

The wonderful musical numbers are arranged and conducted by the late great Percy Faith who Doris Day specifically requested the studio to hire for the job,even though the studio bosses already had another musical director in mind. Percy Faith was hired and for his trouble was nominated for an Oscar at the 1955 awards.The music is both sweet and swingin' and Doris delivers some of the most powerful performances ever seen in any of her movies. The emotion conveyed by her singing is at times quite moving and as always Doris turns in a brilliant reading of every number.
It is such a pity that she did not continue recording in her later years because her voice is one of the real gems of popular music.
There are many who can sing but few who can really pull at the heartstrings the way Doris does. One feels her frustrations and her sadness as well as her joys and happiness. This must be the finest movie Doris Day ever made and she made many good ones.
This is a terrific DVD and Jimmy Cagney is great - not everyone is aware what a wonderful song and dance man he was due to the gangster image created by the numerous movies he did in a villainous role.
With some really fantastic songs with knockout performances and some rollicking good sweet and swingin' music by Percy Faith this is a must have DVD. An added bonus with this wildly entertaining movie is that the entire production unbelievably for 1955 was recorded in true spacial stereo and the DVD sounds wonderful through a stereo sound TV and even better through a home theatre system. This is one movie certainly not to be missed!
Happy viewing and happy listening folks!
