Description

A Runyonesque novel of gangland and Broadway (by the writer of Born Yesterday and other films and books) with 29 wonderful two-color illustrations by Hirschfeld.

The plot centers on a minor-league con man who decides to go (somewhat) straight by moving into the legitimate business of juke boxes and music promotion.

Do Re Mi was made into a musical with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, with the book by Garson Kanin, who also directed the original 1960 Broadway production. The musical was headlined by the comedy couple of Phil Silvers and Nancy Walker, both of whom were Tony nominated. Popular songs introduced included "Cry Like the Wind" and "Make Someone Happy".
