The music of the unforgettable Glen Miller Band adorns this rather forgettable story about an admiring fan (Ann Rutherford) that hastily marries a trumpet player (George Montgomery) and subsequently discovers the problems associated with being one of the Orchestra Wives.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Orchestra Wives...

Made long before movie ratings, this film shows characters smoking in nearly every scene (amazing they still had the lung capacity to blow those horns!). Male chauvinistic attitudes are also prominent, with men referring to women in derogatory terms and hunting analogies. During a tussle a few women begin slapping each other, and very mild sexual references are inferred when an unmarried man and woman discuss what they did during their last date. Finally, one character uses an expletive that could be interpreted as a term of Christian deity.

Details on home video releases of Orchestra Wives...

Release Date: 1 November 2005
Older movies are often lean on extra features, but Orchestra Wives does offer a running commentary by Ann Rutherford and dancer Fayard Nicholas (who, with his brother, starred as the Nicholas Brothers in many musicals from this era). Their remarks reveal interesting thoughts about what it was like to be “famous” during this time period. There is also a photo gallery and a theatrical trailer for this film, as well as a selection of trailers from other older titles produced by 20th Century Fox.
