@PBS History Detectives The Disappearance of Glenn Miller #TCMparty


PBS will be airing a HISTORY DETECTIVES SPECIAL INVESTIGATIONS--The Disappearance of Glenn Miller on Tuesday, July 8th at 9:00 pm ET. If you aren't familiar with the circumstances of the famous band leaders death, this is a great opportunity to get caught up on all the mysterious details!

Miller was doing shows for soliders in world war II along with a fair amount of propanganda aimed at big band loving Germans. He died on December 15 1944, or did he, or how did he. He was flying to France and never arrived nor did they ever find any wreckage???

There are many theories about friendly fire, a secret mission, and more... My favorite is that he died from a heart attack with a French prostitute and it was all a cover up. I look forward to tuning in to this and seeing their new information about the pilot, the weather conditions and the Norseman aircraft that Miller boarded on that fateful flight 70 years ago....
