This piece from the Glenn Miller Story seems so true that it almost gives you shivers if you are of a certain age. The forties and Miller are synonymous and even though the cut lip part is not true, who cares? I don't. According to a member of the Glenn MIller organization it was changed to a clarinet lead because it was too tiring to have the trumpet lead. I don't know exactly what he is talking about, but I buy it. Regardless it was the best part of the movie. I may have to break out my video of it and watch it one more time.
