Novak had already appeared opposite Frank Sinatra in Otto Preminger’s The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), a moody black and white drama about a heroin addict, and she went on to work with Billy Wilder on Kiss Me, Stupid (1964).

Sinatra treated her with extreme kindness on The Man with the Golden Arm but was then (she recalls) an utter “cad” on Pal Joey (1957.)“He was so kind and so gentle [on The Man with the Golden Arm].

However, on Pal Joey, he was playing a womanising ne’er-do-well and was clearly keen to get in character.“It was understandable in retrospect.
