Paris Blues Film Poster


Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier star as two American ex-pat jazz musicians struggling for success in Paris in this 1960s US drama. Trombone player Ram Bowen and saxophonist Eddie Cook (Newman and Poitier) moved to the French capital for its love of jazz and its liberal acceptance of black people, in contrast to their own country's hostile attitudes. When the pair fall in love with Americans tourists Connie and Lillian (Diahann Carroll and Joanne Woodward), Ram and Eddie are forced to decide whether to move back home with them or stay in Paris.
