In this 1992 motion picture, Frankie sings a jazzy rendition of "That Old Black Magic" in the background of one of the nightclub scenes, followed by his brief duet with Kim Basinger for "Let's Make Love."
When ex-con cartoonist Jack Deebs (Gabriel Byrne) was behind bars he found escape by creating Cool World, a cartoon series featuring a voluptuous vixen named Holli Would.
But the toonsmith becomes a prisoner of his own fantasies when Holli pulls Jack into Cool World with a scheme to seduce him and bring herself to life. A hard-boiled detective (Brad Pitt)–the only other human in Cool World–cautions Jack with the law: 'Noids don't have sex with doodles (cartoons).
The flesh proves weaker than ink, however, as Holli takes human form (Kim Basinger) in Las Vegas, starting a trans-universal chase that threatens the destruction of both worlds.
With a splashy mix of animation and live-action sequences, Cool World, delivers the hottest action around.
