Description by OLDIES.com:
It was a time that changed the world. And one man put it to music.
Glenn Miller is playing his terrific big band hits again in this stunning musical biography. The great Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson star in this vibrant tribute to one of America's legendary bandleaders, charting Miller's rise from obscurity and poverty to fame and wealth in the early 1940s.
The wonderful score swings with the original Miller music performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra and such musical giants as Louis Armstrong, Gene Krupa, Frances Langford and The Modernaires. Rounding out the great cast are such favorites as Henry Morgan (M*A*S*H), Charles Drake and George Tobias.
Tastefully directed by Anthony Mann, Glenn Miller's dynamic sound of swing comes alive once more.
James Stewart gives a warm performance as the legendary band leader who met an untimely end in a World War II airplane crash. Though much of Miller's story has been sentimentalized here, the great Big Band music is really what it's all about. Includes performances of "Little Brown Jug," "Moonlight Serenade," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "In the Mood," and many more. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Story and Screenplay; Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
