Synopsis

The Fabulous Dorseys - Digitally Remastered. Their rivalry tore them apart. But music brought the siblings back together. Based on the lives of big-band stars Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, this biographical chronicle begins with their childhood in an industrial Pennsylvania town. Encouraged in their musical talents by their father, the Dorsey brothers' sibling rivalry proves to be a stumbling block until the their father's death gives them the momentum they need to rise to fame and they are eventually considered to be among the best bandleaders of the swing era. Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, playing themselves, were regarded as two of the most important swing and jazz musicians and bandleaders of all time. The film also features appearances by Charlie Barnet, Art Tatum, and Bob Eberly jazz up the musical numbers, including songs such as "Green Eyes," "Everybody's Doin' It," "Marie," and "I'll Never Say Never Again."
