Film / The Glenn Miller Story

A 1954 biopic of Glenn Miller, the American trombonist and bandleader of the 1930s and 1940s, directed by Anthony Mann and starring James Stewart and June Allyson. Lots of good music throughout and a handful of cameos, including Louis Armstrong.

This film provides examples of:

  • Rags to Riches: From poor musical arranger and trombonist selling his instrument at the pawn shop every week to making millions in record sales.
  • Those Two Actors: James Stewart and June Allyson, who appeared together in two other films.
