The Glenn Miller Story (1954)
Young musician Glenn Miller (Academy Award® winner James Stewart, Vertigo) grew up as a dedicated trombone player who wanted nothing more in life then to achieve greatness. With a philosophy of hard work and determination he set out to make it big in show business, starting up his own band, destined to become one of the most successful and influential groups of the big-band era.
With beautiful wife Helen (June Allyson, Little Women) by his side and one of the biggest songs in America, "Moonlight Serenade" under his belt, it would seem nothing could stand in his way. But when the shadow of World War II loomed, Miller gave up his fame and success to help entertain the troops stationed in Europe. An inspiring biography of unparalleled detail, directed by Anthony Mann (El Cid), The Glenn Miller Story captures the life story of one of entertainment’s greatest musicians, featuring a soundtrack of arrangements that truly defined an era.

Benny also meets John's sister, Alice (Donna Reed), and, although she initially dislikes jazz, Goodman wins her over. However, Benny's mother (Berta Gersten) does not approve of the match.
