The uniform worn by Gertrude Niesen in the opening sequence is strictly of a 1943, not 1917, design, complete with padded shoulders and knee length skirt, and totally inappropriate to the 1917 era. See more »
This is The Army is patriotic. It is non-stop music from end to end. Ray Heindorf did an excellent job with the montages of music that are constantly heard throughout the picture. It's a treat to hear Irving Berlin sing his own song "O How I Hate To Get Up In The Morning" with its original verse and chorus.
The print I saw was duplicated from a 35mm print. One can only hope that Warners will restore this film to its original glory. It is a piece of history and its loss would be terrible.
If you plan to rent it, dont get a copy in black and white. The costumes are beautiful in color. The color prints currently available have marginal problems due to the condition of the original master print. Dont let this put you off seeing this. It's well worth the flaws.
Oh yes, there are only a handful of women in the entire production. I warned you.
