Orchestra Wives

   

In Orchestra Wives, beautiful but naive Connie meets her idol, trumpeter Bill Abbot, while his band’s on tour. After marriage, though, she finds out how catty the other wives can be. And how a previous tour nearly ended several marriages.

Bill Abbott: Now listen cutie-pie. I’m a big, bad trumpet player, and never in my life have I seen anything so gorgeous coming off a dance floor. I’ve seen thousands. I’ve kissed some of them, but not like I’m going to kiss you. 

Product Description of  Orchestra Wives

A new bride faces the strain of life on the road in this musical romance that features the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Miller is featured as band leader Gene Morrison, who embarks on a whirlwind national tour with his orchestra. While on the tour, trumpeter Bill Abbott (George Montgomery) impulsively marries one of his many ardent fans, a naive young women named Connie (Ann Rutherford). At first Connie is more than willing to put up with such problems as not spending time with her new husband and the malicious gossip of other wives. But when she comes to believe that Bill is still involved with an old flame, the ensuing quarrel threatens to end both the new marriage and the entire band.
