An odd but entertaining musical short
13 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The performers are in World War I garb with a setting that is meant to be of a French village (written on one of the walls is "See you in Paris kid"). After a rousing rendition of We're Soldiers of Fortune, there then appears on the set out of nowhere a ballerina who is serenaded with "If I Had a Girl Like You." Soon thereafter a country bumpkin type climbs over a wall; she is double jointed and performs a strange dance routine which is just odd enough to be amusing. The short ends with a number about how old fashioned music has given way to more jazzy music. All in all, a fun short. This seems to be the only film extant with Henry Santry and His Soldiers of Fortune.
