Movie Preview - The Rat Race

Based on a play by Garson Kanin, The Rat Race is a comedy featuring Tony Curtis and Debbie Reynolds. Curtis, a naive young sax player, leaves Milwaukee hoping to make it in New York. Reynolds is a taxi-dancer in a ten cents a dance joint. Needless to say, Curtis finds New York different to Milwaukee.

Of particular interest to BSH readers is the on-screen appearances by Gerry Mulligan, Joe Bushkin, Sam Butera and Elmer Bernstein who also wrote the score. The studio musicians on the soundtrack include Barney Kessel, Pete Jolly, Alvin Stoller, Don Fagerquist, Don Ferrara and many more* from the West Coast scene of the time - 1960. 

It's on Talking Pictures - Tuesday at 10:00pm.


* Studio orchestra.
