According to an ad in the Chicago Tribune for Friday, November 8, 1968, it happened on Saturday night, November 9, 1968---the ad reads:The Glenn Miller Story, ****N. Y. Daily News . . . From "Moonlight Seranade" to "Little Brown Jug"---the music that put all America "in the mood."James Stewart, June Allison, First Time on Chicago Television, in color, 10:30 pm Saturday---the Best of CBS on WBBM-TV, Channel 2__________________________________________I cannot write for New York, or LA, however, it probably also appeared on TV in those markets probably on the same date, or near that date . . .
It is unclear whether or not the cuts have a censorship background. Either way, there is a pattern which affects audience's preception of the movie: only scenes in which Helen is giving Glenn a pep talk regarding his dream because he has his doubts about it. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
