Movie Info

Frank Sinatra stars as legendary nightclub comic Joe E. Lewis in this dramatic screen biography. In the 1920s, Lewis was a popular singer in Chicago who could fill any nightclub he chose to play. This doesn't go unnoticed by the mobsters who control many of the city's venues; when they ask Lewis to leave his steady gig and come work for them, he politely but firmly refuses. This does not make Al Capone and his men happy, and they respond by brutally attacking Lewis, cutting his throat and

Audience Reviews for The Joker Is Wild (All The Way)

Sinatra offers a good account of Joe E. Lewis in a film made during his most fruitful as an actor before the laziness of the Rat Pack years crept into his work. The moody black and white camera work also helps set the tone for this rather downbeat bio pic. As the two women in his life Jeanne Crain and Mitzi Gaynor both perform well but the really strong woman's role goes to Beverly Garland, always an underused and undervalued actress, as Eddie Albert's loyal wife. She is strong, gritty, sensible and sympathic as needs be doing a great deal with what could have been a nothing part.

one of the best biopics i have ever seen. honest and authentic, its always great to see sinatra do serious acting and he was superb in the lead. the acting was great all around and the first act was 5 star quality. a great film.

Now don't laugh, okay? I believe Frank Sinatra is way underrated as an actor. I'm not talking about his singing here. I'm talking about pure acting talent. The more I see of him -- this is the first time I've seen this particular movie -- the more I'm impressed by his range. He really is good in both the comic and the dramatic arenas. If he never sang in any of his films, I think he would still stand out as a very fine actor.
