The lost prince of the Big Band era, Glenn Miller, was born on this day in 1904.
Here's a clip with the glorious "Moonlight Serenade," followed by "I Know Why and So Do You." Watch for the cameo by Milton Berle! From 1941's "Sun Valley Serenade." Lynn Bari is the singer.
Miller died Dec. 15, 1944 when his plane crashed while traveling to Paris to perform for the troops.
