The Gene Krupa Story

The Gene Krupa Story

1959, Biopic
This musical biopic is based on the life of Gene Krupa (Sal Mineo), the famed jazz drummer. His Catholic parents want him to be a priest, but Krupa rebels and moves away to make it as a musician in New York City, along with his friend Eddie (James Darren). He eventually falls for a girl, Ethel (Susan Kohner). But the seductions of other women, drugs and fame -- plus a lack of a formal music education -- put a strain on his personal and professional life, and Krupa must re-examine his goals.
