|Too Late Blues|
After the independently produced Shadows
, Cassavetes' foray into studio filmmaking surprisingly stars crooner Bobby Darin as a struggling jazz pianist fighting to maintain his integrity in the cut-throat world of the music business.
As an actor, Cassavetes was more than familiar with the studio style, but as a director he initially deemed this project to be a failure.
With hindsight, Too Late Blues
is now considered one of the more impressive films made about the jazz scene and is a worthy inclusion in the director's filmography.
