Ascenseur pour l'échafaud - Louis Malle - (Elevator to the Gallows)

I'd like to be in London for this:

Miles Davis’ film music and improvisations for "Ascenseur pour l'échafaud"
Here's the beautiful Jeanne Moreau looking distracted while Miles' trumpet conjures up the mood of Fifties' Paris. It's a while since any of us had to pop into the local bar to see if anyone has called (25 years in my case!).

Thanks to the London Jazz Blog for highlighting this clip.
