The Glenn Miller Story (1953)


The delightful 1953 biography of Bandleader, musician, arranger, and composer, Glenn Miller. Directed by Anthony Mann.

Follow the infinite Glenn Miller, portrayed by the impeccable James Stewart, as he searches for that signature "sound", marriage to college sweetheart Helen Burger (June Allyson), the Orchestra's rise to fame, and the solemn disappearance of Miller's plane when flying over to entertain U.S. troops in France during WWII.

With the many hits throughout the film, naming a few "Moonlight Serenade", "String of Pearls", "American Patrol", and "In the Mood". This is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates the sound, and if this was my perfect world, that would be everyone.
