Do Gangsters Drink Milk?

EVERYTHING HAPPENS TO ME

Life down a World War 2 air raid shelter can have its drawbacks, especially when it comes to fresh milk. Those of a certain age will remember days gone by when the milkman would deliver a pint or two on the doorstep every morning. Of course, it's always possible that someone might come along and steal the white liquid, but surely no-one would be so mean? Gangsters might try, but do gangsters actually drink milk? The answer to this question can be found by watching the video.

THE GAL THAT GOT AWAY

ALMOST BLUE - a new video (April 2021)

A beautiful song by Elvis Costello, originally issued on his 1982 album 'Imperial Bedroom'. The eerie and haunting quality of this piece is said to have been inspired by trumpeter Chet Baker and his 1950's recording of the American songbook standard 'The Thrill Is Gone'. In fact, Baker recorded a 7 minute version of 'Almost Blue' in the twilight of his career. He was also the featured trumpeter on Costello's magnificent recording of 'Shipbuilding'. For those interested, the friendship and collaboration of these two artists is more fully documented on Wikipedia. The film clips and stills are from 'The Big Combo', the brilliant and disturbing film noir directed by Joseph H Lewis in 1955, starring Cornel Wilde and Helen Walker, seen here, with Richard Conte, Jean Wallace and Lee Van Cleef.
