The Benny Goodman Story

Steve Allen makes his dramatic film debut in this slow-moving biopic. Outside of Goodman’s conflicts with his parents over his career choice, and his early frustration over not being able to play his kind of music, the film tends to be more a series of musical highlights than a biography.
