The Gene Krupa Story (Original Soundtrack)

“… the drums on the film's great soundtrack were recorded by Krupa himself.”

The Gene Krupa Story has not been shown anywhere outside of movie theaters, where it ran in 1958 and 1959. The drumming, by the way, is Krupa's and the voice is Art Gilmore's, who narrated hundreds of trailers in the 1950s and 1960s.
[From 2004 article, no longer online]

The UK title of the film is "Drum Crazy."
Released theatrically in New York City December 26, 1959.
