Russia during July and August.
This was the first such group to be
allowed behind the Iron Curtain
since the 1930s.
(At the same time, a group of
Russians were inspecting Ameri

other states, and stopped in Lin

More than a
year ago we began
research on a
movie to be called
Pete Kelly's Blues . I
On July 19th the Technicolor lab
delivered the final print It was a
busy thirteen months.
The movie concerns a small jazz
(band which plays in a Kansas City
speakeasy in 1927, so we had to look
into 1927. We had to document the
story with the accents of the Roar
ing Twenties : Prohibition, the Boot
leg Wars, quick money and jazz. We
had to look around and find the right
people to do the music. We managed
- to get a half dozen of the best of the
side-men in jazz and last February
we got lucky. Peggy Lee and Ella
Fitzgerald signed on the same week.
We had two difficult parts to
cast: Ivy Conrad, an over-stimulated
child of the Flapper Age and Fran
McCarg, a brutal symbol of a brutal
period. Janet Leigh fit the bill as Ivy
and Eddie O'Brien, who had just won
an Academy Award, agreed to take
And finally, we had to photo
graph the movie. We had to use the
CinemaScope lens in a way that would
suggest the excitement, the restless
ness, the supercharged gaiety of 1927.
The movie is ready to be shown.
