What Makes Sammy Run? Everyone of us knows someone who runs. He is one of the symp-toms of our times-from the little man who shoves you out of the way on the street to the go-getter who shoves you out of a job in the office to the Fuehrer who shoves you out of the world. And all of us have stopped to wonder, at some time or another, what it is that makes these people tick. What Makes Sammy Run" is told from the perspective of Al Manheim, who meets Sammy at age 16 when Sammy comes to work as a copy runner for a newspaper. Al despises the kid on first sight but finds himself fascinated at the same time and makes it his mission to find out "What Makes Sammy Run?".
The cast album has fifteen songs from the show and the overture. Perhaps the distinguishing quality of the music is how well integrated it is with character. Laurette’s parallels with Sammy are developed in her torchy seductive The Friendliest Thing and their duet, You’re No Good. Al’s duet with Sammy on You Help Me begins with some nice ironies until Sammy blows up and shows his teeth. His duet with Kit Maybe Some Other Time is their wistful regret for something that more than likely could never have been some other time or not.

Schulberg, head of production at Paramount in the 1930s, Budd was a Hollywood prince who got out before becoming totally corrupted by all those pool parties and starlets. In 1941, he wrote the novel What Makes Sammy Run?, an exposé of studio conniving. Its protagonist is a Pal Joey sort of heel who charms, lies, batters, and climbs his way to the top. After.

What Makes Sammy Run? was another flop - albeit a longer-running one - doctored by Burrows. Pop songwriter Ervin Drake wrote the whole thing himself, and not with great distinction. One song stands out, "A Room Without Windows," and it all sounds pretty tuneful by today's standards. The whole show here was Steve Lawrence, who played the anti-hero and kept the show afloat as long as he was happy. It's one thing to remaster state-of-the-art cast albums from the professionals at Columbia or RCA Victor, and quite another to tackle recordings with famously problematic difficulties. Kritzerland Records did just that with the original 1968 Broadway cast album of Promises, Promises. This recording had previously been issued on CD, but with the original problems haphazardly compounded in the mastering process.
