Movie of the Week: Paris Blues (1961)


 The music of Duke Ellington is given a film treatment by Martin Ritt with Paul Newman as the trombone-playing composer, Sidney Poitier as his best friend/sax player, Joanne Woodward as Newman's love interest, Dianne Carroll as the conscious black chick for Poitier and Louis Armstrong as himself. There are also a couple of good supporting performances from Barbara Laage and AndrĂ© Luguet.
