A great big screen

Clarence 'Pro' McClam was a Chicago blues shouter in the 40's and 50's that originally went by the name Professor of The Blues. He changed his name to 'Pro' when Vee-Jay Records left the 'fessor' of the label of his first release for the company. Recorded in October 1954, this was his second and last record for Vee-Jay. It's a somewhat topical song comparing his woman to Hollywood's latest innovation.

Double feature: Big Joe Turner stayed home instead of going out to the pictures.

The late show: The Frantics Four got into the picture too.
