Jimmy is a musical with a score by Bill Jacob, lyrics by Patti Jacob, dance arrangements by John Berkman, and a book by Melville Shavelson and Morrie Ryskind. The musical describes the rise and fall of New York City Mayor Jimmy Walker, whose career was marred by corruption. It was a romanticized version of Walker's tenure as mayor, as presented in the 1957 film Beau James, starring Bob Hope. The film came from a biography of Walker, also titled Beau James, written by Gene Fowler.
Jimmy had a brief Broadway run from October 1969 to January 1970, starring Frank Gorshin as Walker, Anita Gillette as Betty Compton and Julie Wilson. Jack L Warner and Don Saxon produced the original Broadway production under the direction of Joseph Anthony.
