Synopsis
An incident in the life of jazz great Louis Armstrong when, in 1931, he was booked into a small Chicago night spot, turning down a lucrative offer to move over to a club run by gangsters. His manager is bribed to secretly frame him on a marijuana charge, and he is forced to leave town--ironically (after the film ends) he is going to Europe where he was to skyrocket to international fame. Ben Vereen made his dramatic acting debut playing the young Satchmo.
