As a fan of big band music, this is a personal favorite of mine. But, it's not just that great Glenn Miller music but, it's one of less than a handful of films featuring the Glenn Miller Orchestra and one of the only places to see Tex Beneke sing. Also, you get to see "The Great One", Jackie Gleason long before Ralph Kramden; A young Harry Morgan who played on the tv hits Dragnet and M*A*S*H and Ceasar Romero long before he was battling Batman as the Joker on the original Batman series.
