Stars & Stripes Forever Blu-Ray / DVD Review



Synopsis: "Stars and Stripes Forever" is the rousing and patriotic march heard every Fourth of July, and, the inspirational film about the American music legend who wrote it, John Philip Sousa. Beginning with Sousa's days as a sergeant major in the United States Marine Corps and leader of the Corps' famous marching band, "Stars and Stripes Forever" transports you back to the 1890s and Sousa's ascent to world renown as a composer and conductor of "The Sousa Band". Three-time Academy Award(R) Nominee Clifton Webb shines as Souza, "The March King," along with Robert Wagner, Debra Paget and Ruth Hussey.

Review: Stars and Stripes Forever is a nice little biopic about the most famous marching band leader of all time, John Phillip Sousa.   The film is loosely based on this life, taking some dramatic and comedic license at times.  The acting is solid and the overall demeanor of Sousa is captured in this rather entertaining movie.  This is the first time its been available on high-definition blu-ray disc!  The movie looks fantastic.  There is no visible grain and the colors really pop.  This one is a great addition to any collection.

The special features include: From Our National March To The Silver Screen, John Philip Sousa's Contribution To American Music, Pressbook, Advertising and Still Galleries and Original Theatrical Trailer.

Interest Range: Biopic
