Frank Sinatra, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak
"Pal Joey: Soundtrack" (Vinyl)

The 1957 film adaptation of Roger & Hart's broadway musical "Pal Joey" (where Sinatra took over the role played on broadway by Gene Kelly) was a big hit, netting Sinatra a Golden Globe award and being nominated for several Academy Awards.

The songs penned by Roger & Hart for this film yielded a couple of tunes that have become standards in the American song book; "Bewitched," "My Funny Valentine" and "The Lady is a Tramp" all started with this musical.
