One of the great jazz tenor sax players, Dexter Gordon is best remembered by filmgoers for playing fictional sax player Dale Turner in Bertrand Tavernier's 'Round Midnight (1986). His realistic portrayal of a burned-out American jazz man who finds refuge in the cellar clubs of Paris earned Gordon an Oscar nomination -- making him the first instrumental musician to be so honored. Gordon made his film debut in the 1955 prison drama Unchained. His final film appearance was as a mental patient in the drama Awakenings (1990). The film was released after Gordon's death.
