Major Glenn Miller (1904 - 1944). While he was traveling to entertain U.S. troops in France during World War II, Glenn Miller disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel. The Glenn Miller Orchestra was re-formed after the war and continues to record and perform to this day.
Glenn Miller - In The Mood. This is a scene from "Orchestra Wives", the o only movie Miller appeared in (he's playing the lead trombone). But pay close attention when the camera switches from Miller to the pianist - the guy playing the piano looks like the same guy who played Fred Gailey (the lawyer who represented Santa Claus) in "Miracle on 34th Street"..could it be he?
