    A little dates, but still entertaining. The facts were a little scrambled. Nichols made his return to music post-WWII. Glenn Miller died in 1945, but in the movie he was alive and well and still playing. Barbara Geddes was an odd choice for Willa. The real Willa was a lot prettier. Tuesday Weld played the teenage daughter. She went on to do a bunch of other non-memorable films.

    I remember seeing this years ago as a kid. One of the child actors in this movie was a colleague of mine at U of A and, after retiring, still lives in Edmonton.
