  1. I want to provide trivia you are missing related to trumpet ‘playing’ portrayed by Jack Carson in “The Time, the Place, and the Girl” – his trumpeting was ‘ghosted’ by my dad, Paul Geil (1914-2008), who played first trumpet with Benny Goodman, Paul Whiteman, Clyde Lucas, Harry James, and Bob Chester, among others, as well as recorded hits with Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, Tony Martin, Mel Torme … list goes on and on. Just wanted you to know. It really irritates me how rarely Dad is credited for this trumpet “ghosting” he did for Jack. (Dad also coached Jack how to make his “pretend” trumpet playing pass for real.)
