Plot Summary
Jigger Pine (Richard Whorf) is the moody leader of a touring jazz ensemble that's mired in setbacks on the road to success. The ragtag big-band unit includes Jigger on piano, upbeat Nickie (Elia Kazan) on clarinet, cocky Leo (Jack Carson) on trumpet and Leo's angelic wife, Ginger (Priscilla Lane), on vocals. They land a break when they score a regular gig at a roadhouse. But things take a turn for the worse when Jigger falls for a bar diva (Betty Field) with a heart of coal.
