The life and music of jazz great Chet Baker is the subject of this poignant, fascinating documentary by noted photographer Bruce Weber. Interviews with family and friends, clips from his television appearances, and Baker's short-lived movie career in the 1950s, are splendidly intercut with rare recording sessions. The scenes of Baker’s later years are heartbreakingly sad as the ravages of drug addiction have taken its toll on this legendary trumpeter. Unseen for 14 years, this is a new 35mm restoration for its 20th anniversary!
