Miss Peggy Lee never achieved the same recognition as her pals Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. This compelling portrait of the artist tries to rectify this. Loud and clear. And in hot pink. Check out this live performance of "Fever" from 1958. It's shot off of a TV monitor so the sound and video is bad. But that just gives it a cool quality that enhances her hot performance.
