Now listen cutie-pie. I'm a big, bad trumpet player, and never in my life have I seen anything so gorgeous coming off a dance floor. I've seen thousands. I've kissed some of them, but not like I'm going to kiss you.

In many ways a typical studio movie of its time: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, trouble between boy and girl, etc. Resolutions to the dramatic twist are more comic than realistic, but that's standard fare for movies of that era and fans of this genre know what to expect.
The Glenn Miller orchestra with vocals by Marion Hutton, Tex Benecke, and the excellent production values inputed by the film's producers make this movie worth seeing. Also, print out the entire cast list from the IMDb and note all the stars worth identifying as the film progresses.
A must see/have for fans of Glenn Miller and the popular music of the WWII era. If you romanticize this era, as I do, you'll love the film.
