What Does Boogie Mean?
Enjoy this fantastic clip from Billy Wilder's 1941 film Ball Of Fire where Gary Cooper is cast against type as a bumbling academic who falls for Barbara Stanwyck's utterly smokin' gangster's moll / nightclub singer. Gene Krupa has a great cameo as himself here. I hope you enjoy the 'hip' slang as much as I do. Wait for the end where the 'wild man' GK does a match trick. Killer!
