Academy Awards 1954 - Best Sound Recording
Rating: 4/5 -- Miller's great music is THE thing in this romanticized bio of the band leader.
Kansas City Kansan
Rating: A -- Featuring a towering performance from Jimmy Stewart as America's most popular band leader, Anthony Mann's intelligent if also sentimental film is one of the most enjoyable Hollywood biopics. Full Review
Rating: B- -- If you're a fan of the big band sound (which I'm not) you will probably like this pic much better than I did. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 67/100 -- Unfortunately, while Jimmy Stewart provides yet another winning performance as the seminal big band leader, the film is an unsatisfying hybrid.
A strange look at the music business. Full Review
Classic Film and Television
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.
- Songs include: ""Serenade," "String of Pearls," "St. Louis Blues March," "In the Mood," "Little Brown Jug," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "Tuxedo Junction," "American Patrol," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "I Know Why," "At Last," and "National Emblem March."
