Chalk and Cheese at the Roxie
As far as X-rated musicals with Milton Berle, George Jessel, Stubby Kaye and Joan (Mrs. Anthony Newley at the time) Collins go, Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness? is one of the better ones. Here, after a Busby Berkleyesque zodiac number, Joan (playing Polyester Poontang) proves that it was a crime that she didn't go on to do more musicals as she sings to a naked Newley. It screens at the Roxie Wednesday at 9:15 p.m.
