The "Glenn Miller Orchestra" perform "In The Mood" in the 1941 film "Sun Valley Serenade."
Popular swing era trombonist and bandleader Glenn Miller was born in Clarinda, Iowa on March 1, 1904.
He played with bands of Ben Pollack, Joe Venuti, and the Dorsey brothers in the 1920s and early '30s before pursuing a career as composer and bandleader himself.
As one of the best-selling recording artists of the late 1930s his best known recordings included "In the Mood", "Moonlight Serenade", "Chattanooga Choo Choo", "At Last", and "A String of Pearls."
Glenn Miller was declared missing in action after his aircraft vanished somewhere over the English Channel on December 15, 1944 while traveling to entertain U.S. troops in France during W. W. II.
