"Young man with a horn" (1950)

Young Man with a Horn is a 1950 drama film based on a biographical novel of the same name about Bix Beiderbecke, the legendary jazz cornetist. The film is considered to be the first contemporary big-budget jazz film, a genre that became common not soon after the release of the movie, as well as one of the first major Hollywood productions to suggest a lesbian relationship.
The movie stars Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, Doris Day, and Hoagy Carmichael, and was directed by Michael Curtiz and produced by Jerry Wald. The screenplay was written by Carl Foreman and Edmund H. North.
