Bix

Directed by Brigitte Berman
Canada, 1981 (documentary, 116 minutes, colour, English)
Also known as "Bix: Ain't None of Them Play Like Him Yet"

Film Description:
"Bix tells the story of a legendary jazz cornetist, Bix Beiderbecke. Chronicled in intimate and touching detail, his tragically short life (he died in 1931 at the age of 28) is revealed in photos, interviews with friends, family, and fellow musicians, rare film footage and, most importantly, in a nearly continuous stream of beautifully reproduced Beiderbecke recordings."
