Frank Sinatra shines as a gifted, but quick tempered, up and coming lounge singer Danny Wilson who makes a meagre living singing in dive bars and hustling pool with best friend Mike Ryan (Alex Nicol). Even with a set of golden tonsils, “Easy Street” isn’t so easy for Danny to find. One night, by chance, they meet entertainer Joy Carroll (Shelley Winters), who gets them a job at gangster Nick Driscoll’s well-to-do nightclub. But Nick (Raymond Burr), seeing the future potential in Danny's career, wants a high price – 50% of all Danny’s future earnings!

Soon Danny’s career takes off, and with success comes love, money and… complications! A messy love triangle emerges, with Danny falling head over heels for Joy, the club's star singer, who in turn is smitten with his pianist and best friend Mike.

Directed by Joseph Pevney (Flesh and Fury, Man of a Thousand Faces) and starring Frank Sinatra (Ocean's Eleven, The Manchurian Candidate), Oscar winning actress Shelley Winters (Lolita, The Night of the Hunter) and the Emmy award winning Raymond Burr (Rear Window, Perry Mason), the film also includes cameo appearances from Tony Curtis and Jeff Chandler. Meet Danny Wilson is a classic musical drama containing a wonderful range of Sinatra standards such as (I Got A Woman Crazy For Me) She’s Funny That Way, That Old Black Magic, When You’re Smiling (The Whole World Smiles With You), All of Me, I’ve Got a Crush on You, How Deep is the Ocean? and more.
