Tonight's Saturday Night Cinema selection is Paris Blues (1961). I picked this one for the music and the mood. It has a lot going for it, except cohesion and a decent plot. But never mind that. This hipster flick, filmed in Paris, stars Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Sidney Poitier, Diahann Carroll and Louis Armstrong. Scored by Duke Ellington, directed by Martin Ritt. Yes, it's an amazing line-up. And Louis Armstrong and his legendary horn alone are worth the price of admission. And the Duke, what more do you need.
The story is weak, but the jazz is fantasique!
