Sousa's no loser
This romanticized version of Mr. Sousa's
stellar career is just good fuzzy fun. A
serious biography/history has been recently
published by a scholar from Illinois--this
movie, on the other hand, is filled with music
and some clue of life in the USA 1890-1920.
A true musical pioneer, Sousa is aptly
portrayed by Clifton Webb--anyone over 50
will recognize plenty of future TV stars as
well as a couple of movie superstars. But
you'll need to go to imdb.com to confirm
ID's--the acting credits are very sparse.
Excellent quality picture AND sound--worth
your money and your time.
