Fun Political Song

The Yankee Doodler (1942)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Coin operated jukeboxes during WWII were able to play video as well as the audio and this here is one example of that. William Frawley, best known for his role on I Love Lucy, plays a professor who stands in front of a board with various images on it and sings a political song meant to raise spirits and calm people into knowing that America was going to win WWII. The song itself was quite catchy and manages to make you smile and especially with the lyrics and how the images are displayed on the board. The entire "music video" is quite catchy and I can just imagine people watching and listening to this song back in the day and getting extremely pumped up about their country.
