The Benny Goodman Story | 1955
When a young Benny Goodman first starts taking music classes, he becomes very adept at the clarinet and gravitates towards ragtime and jazz. After playing for a few years, an older Benny gains the attention of critic John Hammond, who champions the musician. Benny also meets John's sister, Alice, and, although she initially dislikes jazz, Goodman wins her over. However, Benny's mother does not approve of the match.
