It's hard to imagine what a sensation the "King of Swing" was in his time until you see screaming fans dancing in the aisles to his big-band sound. Here's the whole story, beautifully told, from Goodman's Chicago beginnings as a child of Russian Jewish immigrants through his rise to the status of cultural icon.

Including early performance footage, rare rehearsal scenes, home movies, and a rich array of interviews.
