Marion Hutton,(older sister of actress Betty Hutton) ,was discovered by Glenn Miller and was invited to join the Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1938. Hutton was not allowed to sing in the nightclubs because she was underage. Glenn Miller and his wife Helen Burger Miller officially became her foster parents which allowed her perform in night clubs. She performed with Miller on and off until the orchestra disbanded in 1942.
Marion Hutton, had a small role in the film, Orchestra Wives(1942), in which the Glenn Miller Orchestra starred. After Glenn Miller joined the Army in 1942, she performed with Tex Beneke and the Modernaires.The next important performance was in a film role, In Society, with Abbott and Costello in the mid-1940s. Marion Hutton performed with the Desi Arnaz orchestra in October 1947 at the Radio City Theatre in Minneapolis. As the 1940s wound down, so did Marion's career. Her last film role was in 1949, acting in the Marx Brothers' Love Happy.
