Joey Evans is charming, handsome, funny, talented, and a first class, A-number-one heel. When Joey meets the former chorus girl ("She used to be 'Vera...with the Vanishing Veils'") and now rich widow Vera Simpson, the two lecherous souls seem made for each other. That is, until Linda English comes along. Linda is a "mouse on the chorus line" and built like there's no tomorrow. But she's the typical good little girl from a good little home -- just the right ingredient to louse up Joey's cushy set up.

Columbia had a chance to star Gene Kelly
in "Pal Joey" over a decade earlier in 1943 when the studio sold the rights to the hit musical "Best Foot Forward" to MGM for cash and the services of Kelly for one picture. Instead, Columbia chose to co-star Kelly in Cover Girl
(1944) with Rita Hayworth

After Linda sings, Mrs. Simpson talks to Joey with her left hand touching her chin. In the following shot her hands are on her handbag. In the same scene Joey rests his left hand on his leg, but between shots his left hand appears on the back of the chair beside him. See more
