    Phenix City Story, The -- (Movie Clip) Phenix City Blues

    Pinup girl and later soap opera actress Meg Myles (as "Judy") is plenty plausible as a draw for the patrons of the "Poppy Club," (who came largely from Fort Benning, in Georgia) performing "Phenix City Blues" by Harold Spina in director Phil Karlson's The Phenix City Story, 1955.
