Songs celebrate the Coast Guard, the U.S. Marines, and various branches of the U.S. Navy.

11th. Naval District 'United States Coast Guard Band' (1944)

*** (out of 4)

When WW2 broke out every studio in the country started producing various features and subjects built around the war, the men fighting it and various other aspects. We got various documentaries from the likes of Frank Capra, John Ford and John Huston and we got major stars like James Stewart and Clark Gable to appear in them. This short here takes a look at the then famous Coast Guard Band who were popular enough to put on concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and various other places. This short runs ten-minutes and is pretty entertaining as the songs are patriotic and rather nice. I'd be lying if I said I was familiar with any of the tunes being played but that didn't take away any of the entertainment.
