Larry Karaszewski on

Orchestra Wives

Released 1942
Distributor Twentieth Century Fox

Archie Mayo’s 1942 film is a tuneful soap opera sustained by a treasure trove of swing era classics courtesy of Glenn Miller and his orchestra. Miller plays a bandleader who finds himself embroiled in a musical hornet’s nest of horny husbands and jealous wives. Ann Rutherford and George Montgomery star as an embattled bride and groom and Jackie Gleason shines in a bit part as Miller’s bass player.
