Bob Dylan Goes Film Noir in His New Music Video

opencultureBob Dylan’s newly-released album, Shadows in the Night, features Dylan covering pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra during the 1940s and 1950s. And what better way to promote the album than to release a music video that pays homage to a great style of film from the same era — film noir.  The track showcased in the noir video, “The Night We Called It A Day,” was recorded by Sinatra not once, not twice, but three times — in 1942, 1947 and 1957.  Between the second and third recordings, Sinatra starred in a noir film of his own. Now in the public domain, Suddenly (1954) can be viewed online. It also appears in our collection of 60 Free Noir Films.
