After the dance number with Jane and the three guys with serving trays, they place the trays behind him and the sticks on the bottom they held while dancing were clearly visible, but cut to the next shot and the trays are flat on the floor. See more »

19 August 2000 | by (Soucht, France) – See all my reviews

If you like jazz, you'll like this one : there's a good part of this movie which takes place in Los Angeles' night-clubs with guest star Louis Armstrong. The story may look classical for a film noir, but the way it shows the story of a drummer penetrating in the underground world is surprising : watch it especially for the drum solos. Enjoyable !
