Probably a bit 'left of centre' to what Polly was getting at....but Krupa and Satchmo actually playing themselves in the same movie.....'nuff said!!
EDIT: I've made a mess of this......the Jimmy Stewart movie I was referring to was actually The Glenn Miller Story!
The Benny Goodman Story is another movie starring Steve Allen that also features Gene. Apols Poll.
I love those old films, the Dorsey brothers, Man with a horn etc etc. I think it comes from having a big band singing mother who was in love with Krupa.
