Paris Blues (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Martin Ritt

Ram Bowen (Paul Newman The Hustler) and Eddie Cook (Sidney Poitier In the Heat of the Night) are jazz musicians who live for music. Their Paris is one of underground, smoke-filled Jazz bars and the rain-drenched streets of the Left Bank at night. However their carefree idyll is disturbed when two American tourists (Joanne Woodward and Diahann Carroll) enter their lives, and against the backdrop of music and moonlight, they find themselves falling in love.

All too soon however, romance is put to the test, as the men find themselves torn between their love for the women, and their passion for music. Featuring the legendary Louis Armstrong as Wild Man Moore, the film's score by the incomparable Jazz musician Duke Ellington was Oscar® nominated in 1962.
