Young Man with a Horn (1950)-Kirk Douglas Trying to Hit the High Note!

On TCM very early 9/10/16- Young Man with a Horn (1950) – Directed by Michael Curtiz with yet another energetic performance by Kirk Douglas this time as gifted young musician Rick Martin who has problems hitting the happiness high note in life. Also with the great acting and musical talents of Doris Day, a great if a little different performance by Lauren Bacall and the very entertaining narration and music of Hoagy Carmichael telling us the story of Rick from the perspective of a jazz insider. Catch the strong performance of veteran character actor Juano Hernandez as Rick’s mentor in life and music.
