RIP JOEY BISHOP 1918-2007

This is the trailer from an interesting movie called Johnny Cool from 1963. Turner Classic Movies has aired it twice this year. Keep your eyes open for it if they show it again. It has an AMAZING (and weird) cast. It's not available on VHS or DVD (or laserdisc or 8Track while we're at it). Joey Bishop plays a used car salesman from Nevada - and when I have the capacity to upload video from my own collection I promise to upload his main scene. Directed by William "Frankie and Annette Movies" Usher, the film stars:

Joey Bishop
Mort Sahl
Jim Backus
Henry Silva
Telly Savalas
Elisha Cook Jr.
Sammy Davis Jr.
and Ray "The Killer Shrews" Kellogg
