Format: DVD
In 1941 the Glen Miller Orchestra (swing style big band really) was reaching it's top of the American pops position. This was partly due to the fact that it could swing as well as Goodman and Shaw and the many other big bands whose names and popularity still echoes down the 70 years since swing became the American way of music and lingers there especially through the high school bands of today, and partly due to its ability to be excessively sickeningly sentimental...So what has this to do with the movie, well as the other reviewer suggests not only do you get the Miller band in superb sound but you get to see how the "well off American" spent a week skiing in New York State (I think that's where Sun Valley is or supposed to be) as well as Sonja Henie, John Payne, oh and Milton Berle and some lovely tweed overcoats straight out of Hollywood's wardrobe department, never been near a snow field nor a grubby city like I assume '40's New York was!.

The story is light weight but in fact very enjoyable and although the comedy is not laugh out loud its certainly a timely upbeat when clearly America either was just in or about to be in WWII. The songs are good, the band never played better and SH skates like a dream. You also get Dorothy Dandridge and the dancing Nicholas Brothers were a head line act of the time in Chattanooga Choo Choo.

If you are getting this just for the Miller band you'll be more than happy and no doubt also have Orchestra Wives, somewhat more about the band but still with bus and train (internal only) appearances of the time and again with excellent sound and whilst I am at it you should also get the Fred Astaire movie with Artie Shaw; Second Chorus.

In this troubled world it is neccessary every now and then to escape-ok-then the escape valve comes in the form of the movie "Sunvalley Serenade" appearing are some great entertainers
-The Glen Miller Band-- the lovely ice skating former olympic
champion-sonja henie-John Payne-Ceaser Romero-and some very clever ski-ing shots all wrapped up in a visit to Sunvalley
and music wise it is a treat- watch out for the trains arrival
and the subsequent sleigh ride to the accompaniement of the Glen Miller number "It happened in sun valley" a perfect song
for the occasion-makes you wish you were right their with them-
well the next best thing is- when you have seen the movie for the first time-make your self a coffee and settle in and watch it
again- the "feel good" glow will last for quite a while- L Collins

Wonderful example of classic Hollywood during the early 1940s. A rare and probably the finest example of the real Glenn Miller and his band and music nicely integrated into a PG romantic story. Period cars, trains, attire and towns including art deco decor.

If you like swing music, in particular Glenn Miller, this film is just for you.
It isn't easy to see on video Glenn Miller Band, but you can do in this film. You can hear and "see" the best hits like In The Mood, I Know Why (And So Do You), Chattanoga Choo Choo.
The story is simple but nice.
The film take us directly during the 40's.

This is the first of only two Glenn Miller films (the other one being "Orchestra Wives") and as a result probably suffers from the studios reluctance to allow the Miller band to carry the film alone, without the "added attraction" of olympic skater, Sonia Henie. Despite the oil and water mix the resuling film is probably better than you might expect. Henie gives an engagingly naive performance in a simple story line, with some wonderful skating pyrotechnics thrown in for good measure, while the Miller band sequences are just about as good as it gets. The band started work on the picture on 24th March 1941 and finished on 3rd of May. Personel was unchanged from the previous November and this shows in the performance. The "togetherness" is breathtaking. Many of the sidemen would go on to form their own bands later, (Billy May; Ray Anthony; Tex Beneke; Hal McIntyre), or move into the "studios" when the big bands lost their appeal and the singers took over in the late forties early fifties. It has been said that Glenn Miller never hired a "dud" musician and his work for the Fox Studios in 1941 and 1942 certainly prove this point.

This is one of my all time favourite films! The perfect show case for Miller's Orchestra with Sonja Henie and John Payne acting their roles wonderfully. Great support roles too from Milton Berle and Lynn Bari (who also appeared in Miller's only other film, Orchestra Wives). The film includes a great dance routine by the Nicholas Brothers (who were also in Orchestra Wives), with a young Dorothy Dandridge who charmingly sings with them in Chatanoogoo Choo Choo. My only regret is that we are unable to see the final skating routine in colour as it must have been beautiful. My top tip - look out for Sonja Henie's amazing spins, you won't believe that someone could go that fast!
