Outtake from A KING IN NEW YORK (1957)

British actress & singer Shani Wallis performs in this deleted scene from A King In New York.

Charlie wrote the music, lyrics, and, judging from the photos below, had a hand in the choreography as well.


  1. I've never been able to find many clips of this film. That was a cute scene with Shani. The fifties spawned so many darlings. She is definitely a broadway play type. His son Syd was probably bringing his theatre girlfriends around a lot. I think Michael would have made more films if Charlie had encouraged him instead of placing his academic education first. I saw that in an interview where young Michael was interviewed after his part in this film. He was all GO…….but his parents said other things must come first. I guess in Hollywood CC had seen the moms push to hard at a very young age and then the kids not have income later.
