Good noir musical biopic (hows that for a mash-up?), especially frigid, psycho Bacall and tour-de-force alcoholic Douglas. All Doris Day can do is stand back and let those two monsters devour each other.
Un jeune homme passionné de musique devient un célèbre trompettiste de jazz jusqu'au jour où la rencontre avec une femme fatale fait de lui un malheureux alcoolique ..... Excellent ! www.cinefiches.com
Not bad. Douglas gives it his all. I understand that he did not connect with Doris Day who is obviously uncomfortable BUT she is a great singer and she has her moments. Bacall does nicely with an impenetrable character. Juano Hernandez is, as always, an asset. I enjoyed it.
