  • This backstage drama showcases the big band music of Glenn Miller and his orchestra, with Glenn and the boys playing "Gene Morrisson and his band". Small-town girl Connie (Anne Rutherford) falls in love with Bill Abbott (George Montgomery), a trumpet player who thinks marriage is for fools. After a stolen kiss and a night of romance, Connie and Bill get married, and Connie begins to travel with the band and the other musicians' spouses. However, the wives begin arguing during the tour and the band breaks up. Meanwhile, the marriage between Connie and Bill hits the rocks. Just as they decide to separate, Sinjin, the band's pianist, joins forces with Connie to save both the band and the marriage. In the process, she comes to understand just what it means to be a musician's wife. The film features the songs "I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo," "At Last," and "Serenade In Blue."

    "...[With] Jackie Gleason on bass, Cesar Romero on piano, good renditions of 'Serenade in Blue' and 'At Last', plus a great one of 'I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo'..."
    USA Today

    "A black-and-white contemporary musical intended as a showcase for the big band of Glenn Miller, ORCHESTRA WIVES represented a rare attempt to dramatize the actual lives of working musicians."
