A very happy 'and free' holiday
24 December 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

MGM short with actor Lewis Stone reminding Americans about soldiers serving overseas who can't be home for Christmas. On behalf of the motion picture industry, he thanks those serving while stock footage of troops in various locales flashes across the screen. You'd never see that today! It's a very simple short with just one man talking to the camera, but that one man played the venerable Judge Hardy in the popular Hardy series, so I'm sure audiences at the time would have appreciate what he had to say. It's a nice message that we would do well to remind ourselves of during the holidays still to this day. Also, it was released during the Christmas season of 1941, which we all know was an especially dark time. So while there's interest for classic film fans here, there's also some historical value given the timing.
