Blues in the Night is a 1941 American musical in the film noir style, directed by Anatole Litvak, starring Priscilla Lane, Richard Whorf, Betty Field, Lloyd Nolan, Elia Kazan and Jack Carson.


PlotEdit

Jigger Pine (Richard Whorf) is the moody leader of a touring jazz ensemble that's mired in setbacks on the road to success. The ragtag big-band unit includes Jigger on piano, upbeat Nickie (Elia Kazan) on clarinet, cocky Leo (Jack Carson) on trumpet and Leo's angelic wife, Ginger (Priscilla Lane), on vocals. They land a break when they score a regular gig at a roadhouse. But things take a turn for the worse when Jigger falls for a bar diva (Betty Field) with a heart of coal.
