    Stars and Stripes Forever is the highly fanciful filmed biography of "march king" John Philip Sousa. Clifton Webb does a fine job as Sousa, while Ruth Hussey is equally good in the less-demanding role of Sousa's wife. The problem faced by screenwriter Lamar Trotti (who adapted the film from Sousa's autobiography Marching Along) was that, outside of Sousa's early travails in organizing his own band after leaving the Marine Corps, there just wasn't much drama in the great composer's life. Thus, a secondary (and wholly ... Show more

Sousa's no loser

by Quark on May 14, 2009

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.
