The Glenn Miller Story Reviews:

It is told that Miller should never remember precisely the moment he decided to emphasize his fresh reed section sound... But it was during this disheartening interim, that he realized the special sound, produced by the clarinet holding the melodic line while the tenor sax plays the same note, and supported harmonically by three another saxophones - just might be the individual and easy recognizable style that would set his band apart from all the rest...Photographed in color, Anthony Mann's 'The Glenn Miller Story' is purely a time trip to those years, when Glenn Miller's band ruled the record charts and anchored the airwaves... The film, beautifully captured Miller's spirit and follows his life storyline with reasonable fidelity... It is one of the most charming and touching musical biography... Appearing in glasses and winning grin, Stewart kisses Allyson, holding her face lightly with his fingers, the same method he detains his trombone slide... Stewart applied his natural musical expertise, testing on the trombone... Miller's style was there. The original sound was there. The true melody was there. The mix was there...The movie traces Miller's romance and marriage to his college sweetheart, Helen Burger, and his progress from a free-lance trombonist and arranger to band leader...The pop melody styles of '20s sweet and jazz bands were getting ready for the Large Band or Swing era of the '30s... About this time, Miller began writing charts that would one day to be his band's stock in fame, the clarinet "lead" sound over the saxophones... Miller's imagination, powerful will, and determination kept his aspirations alive.. His music, a attentive mixture of swing, jazz, and improvisation, flowed like spring with matchless string of hit records ( "Moonlight Serenade," "String of Pearls," "Pennsylvania 6-5000", "Little Brown Jug," "In the Mood," & "Chattanooga Choo Choo," among others... The constant impact of radio broadcasts, and the drawing power at dance pavilions built and sustained the momentum of Miller's popularity...June Allyson, who regularly played the little, lip-quivering waiting wife, again she is the petite and husky-voiced girl who, once married, is supportive and inspirational.. She finances Glenn what he needs to begin his own band... Her scenes with Stewart have such a natural, easy-going on the screen, that we receive fully drawn into their lives... Also featuring in the movie are such legendary figures as Frances Langford, Gene Krupa, and Louis Armstrong...With its special jazz sound, 'The Glenn Miller Story' is a competent musical heart warmer with a well-cast star and successful reproduction of the Miller sound...


James Stewart in one of his greatest roles of the 1950s testing the late bandleader in the embellished storyline of his life; June Allyson plays his wife – one of her greatest roles and I trust one of her private favourites.Watching the true Miller in ‘Orchestra Wives' and then watching this, Stewart is really a revelation in this role. All the hits of the band are represented – Moonlight Serenade, In The Mood, Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, Pennsylvania 65000. Some artistic licence has been taken but the entire is funny, celebratory, and at the end fairly touching. One of the greatest Hollywood biopics, right in the middle of a glut of them (Love Me or Leave Me, With a Song In My Heart, The Eddy Duchin Story, Night and Day, Words and Music, Three Tiny Words …).


The unemployed trombone user Glenn Miller (James Stewart) is everytime broken, chasing his sound to form his band and hocking his instrument in the pawn house to survive. When his mate Chummy MacGregor (Henry Morgan) is hired to enjoy in the band of Ben Pollack, the band-leader listens to one Glenn's composition and invites him to join his band. While traveling to Fresh York, Glenn visits his former girlfriend Helen Berger (June Allyson), in Boulder, Colorado, and asks her to wait for him. Two years soon he quits the band and proposes Helen that moves to Fresh York to marry him. After the success of "Moonlight Serenade", Glenn Miller's band becomes worldwide known and Glenn and Helen and their two kids have a very comfortable life. Duting the Globe Fight II, Glenn enlists in the units and travels to Europe to increase the moral of the allied troops. In the Christmas of 1944, he travels from London to Paris for a concert to be broadcast; however his plane is never found in the tragic flight.Glenn Miller was the nice idol of my father and I recall that in my childhood, he loved the albums (long-plays) of this American musician and usually commented his tragic end. I do not know how many times I listened to hits like "Moonlight Serenade", "String of Pearls", "Pennsylvania 6-5000", "Little Brown Jug", "In the Mood", "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and another Glenn Miller's musics when I was a kid. This is the first time that I watch "The Glenn Miller Story" and the nice combination of the melody of Glenn Miller and James Stewart. Further, the lovely June Allyson shows a unbelievable chemistry with James Stewart and together with the stunning Louis Armstrong, Frances Langford, Ben Pollack, Gene Krupa, Barney Bigard, James Young, Marty Napoleon, Arvell Shaw, Cozy Cole, Babe Russin and others personalities, they create a nice tribute to a superb American musician and composer. My vote is eight.Title (Brazil): "Música e Lágrimas" ("Music and Tears")
