Hoagy Carmichael’s great trademark look of fedora pushed WAY back on his head. A still from Young Man with a Horn, a not-great but still interesting movie with Kirk Douglas woefully miscast as a Bix Beiderbecke-inspired doomed trumpet player. Hoagy had known Bix in the 1920s and apparently wrote Stardust to capture the kind of poetic melodies Bix used to improvise.
