Compilation
18 January 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Warner Bros. short that edits pieces from three previous shorts together to make one. There's no story here. The United States Army, Navy, and Marine Corps bands perform music over stock war footage. There's also what looks like some footage from a WB war movie or short. "The Rear Gunner," according to IMDb. I'll take their word for it as I haven't seen it. The music is nice. The historic footage is also interesting to watch. Jean Negulesco is credited with direction as he directed the three shorts this compiles footage from. I'm sure history buffs will enjoy it a lot. Give it a shot if you catch it on TCM or find it online. If possible, seek out the three original shorts for more footage and music.
