I'm beginning at saxophone, I'm certainly not a the level of a pro, but it feels very special to make a poll that I can relate to.

Does this have to be all movies? I know of a very famous tv show where the wife of a bandleader who plays the sax horrendously bad.

I think that it would be better to make saxophonist in TV series in another poll.

cinephile,

For your consideration for a TV version of the poll:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Three_Sons#Musical_connections
... MacMurray began his career as a saxophone player during the 1930s, and sometimes played it on the series, as well as clarinet. ...

My Three Sons (1960–1972)

You forgot The Talented Mr Ripley. That was the first film came to my mind. Hardly ever has the sax had so much sex appeal than when played by Jude Law as Dickie Greenleaf.
