     A clarinet-playing friend of mine here in Austin recommended the 
movie "Swing" (see below).  (It's also listed on the Internet Movie 
DataBase at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0140590/.)
     I haven't seen it myself, but i thought i'd pass along the 
recommendation in case you notice it on TV in your area.  It actually 
has a song called "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens".
