"Fine Coast Guard We Are For You"
19 January 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This short film is a band concert by the 11th Naval District US Coast Guard Band which had a celebrity leader in the person of the famous Vagabond Lover himself Rudy Vallee. This was Rudy's contribution to the war effort as he left his famous Connecticut Yankees Orchestra for the Coast Guard for the duration of World War II. Knowing his legendary cheapness you can bet he lived on his officer's salary for that period.

Some familiar melodies like Anchor's Aweigh and The Marine's Hymn are in the concert and some ones I never heard of like I didn't know the submarines service had a theme song. The Coast Guard marching song tops the program and I do know that one.

Vallee even got to sing an original number and I would have been completely disappointed if he didn't. What's There To Like About a Sailor sung with an unidentified girl trio.

The short is directed by Bobby Connolly who choreographed all the Warner Brothers musicals that Busby Berkeley wasn't available for. The short is a nice wartime memory.
