The Legend of 1900
Jelly on a roll... Mmmmmm...
A look at the birth, life and death of a man who officially never existed. Found as a baby aboard a cruise liner, the little boy is raised on the ship, where he turns out to be a musical genius. In adult life he is the ship's pianist, where talk of his skill extends to the continents, so much so that the inventor of Jazz feels compelled to challenge him to a piano duel. Our hero never once left the ship, feeling unable to cope with all the choices that life in a city would give him. As a slice-of-life movie, there is not much to the storyline, but some really great music...
Note: the film is in colour, best pic I could find was B+W.
