A terrible title for not-so-bad a film...
Douglas does a fine job...with a fine script that isn't afraid to go a little further - into a place where Hollywood would prefer not to tread.
Daring for its time...a lesbian in the 1950s...wow.
Aimless youth Rick Martin learns he has a gift for music and falls in love with the trumpet. Legendary trumpeter Art Hazzard takes Rick under his wing and teaches him all he knows about playing. To the exclusion of anything else in life, Rick becomes a star trumpeter, but his volatile personality and desire to play jazz rather than the restricted tunes of the bands he works for lands him in trouble.
