From The Motion Picture (CBS) - Directed by Clint Eastwood
During the late 1940s Parker toured in Europe, and by 1951, he rose to the status of the most influential jazz musician in the world. His notoriety as a heroin addict had also become legendary, and the New York police eventually withdrew his cabaret card (a requisite to working in New York nightclubs). Thereafter, he adopted a more itinerant lifestyle, playing with pick-up groups in Boston, Newark, Philadelphia, Chicago, and in California. His cabaret card was reinstated in 1953, but by then he was beset by sporadic employment, debt, and failing physical and mental health. He twice attempted suicide in 1954 and voluntarily committed himself to New York's Bellevue Hospital. His last public appearance was on March 5, 1955, at Birdland, the club named in his honor in 1949. A chronic abuser of drugs and alcohol, Parker died in 1955 at the age of 34.
His life formed the basis for Clint Eastwood's 1988 film ''Bird''.
