Chet Baker, 1977

"Born to Be Blue," a new film starring Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker, opens in theaters tomorrow. A week later comes "Miles Ahead," with Don Cheadle directing and starring as Miles Davis. In this archival edition of Fishko Files, WNYC's Sara Fishko explores how the cool mystique of the jazz trumpeter has long fascinated fans and filmmakers, including Bruce Weber, who documented Baker's life in his 1988 film, "Let's Get Lost." (Produced in 2007)
