In the 1890s, Sgt. Major John Philip Sousa, leader of the Marine Corps Band, meets Private Willie Little, inventor of an instrument he calls the Sousaphone...and Little's girlfriend, shapely showgirl Lily. To support his growing family, Sousa leaves the Marines and forms his own band; Willie and Lily go along. Though he'd rather write ballads, Sousa's marches bring him increasing fame; from their debut in 1892 the band is a great success. But Sousa's 'no wives' rule threatens the romance of Willie and Lily...as does the Spanish-American War. Written by

Sousa was superstitious and refused to wear a pair of gloves more than once considering it to be bad luck. In the beginning of the film he orders 110 dozen pairs of pigskin gloves (1320 pairs) at five dollars a pair. That comes to $6,600 at a time when a new car cost about $700 and you could buy a house for around $4000. See more »

This film shares with some few ones, the virtue of having remained in my memory "for ever."(I should express myself through a "translator." Apologize if there are errors.) they are many the movies that one goes. They are few those that have this "angel" Of those "new" it could mention "Ghost", or those of Schwazenegger..!, or "The Bodyguard", or Nothinhill or E.T", it doesn't depend on the "gender", neither of the performance, neither of the truthfulness, neither of the budget. They have something that makes them maybe inolvidables.Y it is the virtue more "looked for" for all artist. I ignore if these last they will pass the the 50 year-old test in the memory of the new generations. But "Stars and Stripes for ever", it shares with first o'clock "The Defiant ones", "The Unicorn", "Taxi to Toubruc", "Splendor in the Grass", among other, that "mystery." Still without the promotion of "Casablanca"· or "Gilda", for example, they remain in the memory "forever." I have not seen it again in almost 50 years. I cannot already speak of superlative performances or historical inaccuracies. It is not surely a "documental" But it is an unforgettable movie. I yearn that Sousa would surely share.
