Description by OLDIES.com:

The music of Benny Goodman comes to life in this wonderful musical biography of the famed King of Swing. Featuring all the outstanding songs and instrumentals made famous by the immortal clarinetist, the story follows the innovative musician from his childhood in Chicago to his historic concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. Steve Allen, Donna Reed and Sammy Davis Sr. star in this unforgettable tribute to Goodman and his music with performances by the original Benny Goodman Quartet (Gene Krupa, Teddy Wilson, Ben Pollack, Edward "Kid" Ory and Lionel Hampton) along with Harry James, Martha Tilton and Ziggy Elman. The priceless soundtrack highlights Goodman himself with classic renditions of "Sing, Sing, Sing," "One O'Clock Jump," "Stompin' At The Savoy," "Moonglow," "Goody, Goody" and many more.

Product Description:

The music's the thing in this glossy life of Benny Goodman - and the swinging clarinet great himself supplied the sounds. The story follows Goodman from his modest upbringing in Chicago through romance and marriage to his historic concert at Carnegie Hall. Jazz buff Allen has just the right bookish kind of hep, and Harry James and Gene Krupa are among the musical cameos.
