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.

A strange look at the music business.

Unfortunately, while Jimmy Stewart provides yet another winning performance as the seminal big band leader, the film is an unsatisfying hybrid.

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.

Miller's great music is THE thing in this romanticized bio of the band leader.

Audience Reviews for The Glenn Miller Story

This is the second of three movies that Stewart and Allyson worked together that I have seen. They really do work well together in that clean, golly gee, kinda way. The actors are great, the music is excellent, and the story is ok; although not historically accurate. It's all about the great music.
