United States Service Bands, The (1943)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This Warner shot is pretty much a hack job version with earlier shorts being edited down to one. Songs from THE UNITED STATES ARMY BAND, THE UNITED STATES MARINE BAND and THE UNITED STATES NAVY BAND are all edited down into this film so if you haven't seen any of them you might get a kick out of this. Personally, I've seen those shorts and I think you'd do yourself justice by spending the 24-minutes watching those three instead of viewing them in an edited down 8-minute version. The music here is certainly good as the bands really do nice justice to the songs they're performing but if you enjoy what you see and hear here then you'll certainly want to see the expanded versions.
