Try wrapping and sealing a plastic bag around the joint area and fill
it with kerosene. Let this sit for a few days to allow the kerosene
to wick into the joint before trying to get some movement into the
joint using the methods suggested by others.
Once you get some movement (twisting) try soaking some more kerosene
into the joint. This will help prevent galling, as well as
introducing some lubrication into the joint to help breal down any corrosion.
