Jazz-Experts: Please help me find great Jazz music in movies!

So, let's just assume I got an internship for this small radio station and I want to start a segment introducing listeners to great Jazz music in movies - can be both specifically written/performed for the particular movie or a song/track that existed previously and was used prominently in the movie.

What I am looking for are of course examples that stand out or even better are associated with the movie. Forgive my lack of English and my poor knowledge, but here are just two rather obvious examples: "As time goes by" in Casablanca and the songs of Nat King Cole in In The Mood for Love.
So it can be any style as long as it can be loosely associated with the genre jazz. Bonus points for recommending any search engine or other internet resource that could help me with this task. IMDB for example does not really help here. Thanks!
