Watch Bob Dylan's Film Noir Video for 'The Night We Called it a Day'

Bob Dylan has gone back to black & white for "The Night We Called it a Day."

Nash Edgerton shot the film noir-styled clip, which is loaded with the genre's conventions: dirty double-crossing, snubnosed revolvers, smoky nightclubs and femme fatales. Dylan performs opposite Robert Davi, the opera-singing heavy Jake Fratelli from the '80s kids' classic The Goonies.

"The Night We Called it a Day" is lifted from Dylan's most recent album, Shadows in the Night, a collection of covers of songs Frank Sinatra recorded in the 1940s, '50s and '60s.  

Shadows, Dylan's 36th studio album, topped Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart, opened at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, and peaked at No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart -- more than 50 years after The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan topped the survey in 1964. Watch the new video below.
