the motion picture

you are about to see...

is a story of music.

I play the role ofTom Miller,

an agent-

a small-time theatrical agent...

who had been a-

Well, you'll see.

This motion picture was photographed

in the grandeur of CinemaScope...

and-

Pardon me.

As I was saying,

this motion picture...

was photographed in

the grandeur of CinemaScope...

and in gorgeous,

lifelike color by Deluxe.

Gorgeous, lifelike color by Deluxe!

Sometimes, you wonder

who's minding the store.

Oh, yes.

Our story is about music...

not the music of long ago...

but the music

that expresses the culture...

the refinement and the polite grace

of the present day.

Still bringing your acts around

to catch free drinks, huh?

- Okay, Nick, put it on my tab.

- Hmm.

- If I can find room.

- [Ringing]

Hello? Huh?

Yeah, he's here.

It's for you.

Hello? Yes, this is Miller.

Sorry, I can't talk now.

I'm just closing a big deal

on one of my acts.

It's closed.

I make fast deals.

Tonight? No, I'm working

on another big deal tonight.

What's that address again?

942 Park Avenue?

Apartment 1502.

I might make it after all.

Okay, 8:
30.

[Doorbell Buzzes]

[Sighs]

- I'm Miller.

- I'm Mousie.

##[Woman Singing On Film]

In there.

He's expecting you.

Who is?

[Man]

Hey, Miller.

Grab yourself a chair.

Lay off the booze, Miller.

[Applause]

Put the other reel on, Mousie.

I love old movies at home.

Like TV, except no commercials.

- Glad you could come, Miller.

- Thanks, Mr. -

Murdock.

You can forget the mister.

My friends call me Marty.

Fats Marty.

- Fats Marty?

- Ring a bell?

Vaguely, I seem to remember the name.

Vaguely. Vaguely everyone remembers.

Vaguely, I don't like it.

- My memory isn't the best.

- Forget it.

- Drink?

- I got the idea you were hoarding it.

That's brandy.

You're a scotch-over-the-rocks man.

Didn't want you to make

a mistake in the dark.

I know everything about

the people I do business with.

Except with you,

business ain't been so good lately, huh?
