This Is The Army is a special commemorative musical, featuring a fabulous score by Irving Berlin honoring the brave men and women of the US Armed Forces. Originally distributed for the benefit of the US Army Emergency Relief Fund during World War II, its appeal and charm remain timeless.

This Is The Army is really a continuation of an Irving Berlin wartime musical from WWI, Yip Yip Yaphank. Originally staged in 1918 to boost the morale of the troops during the First World War, the musical featured some of Berlin's most loved songs. The spirit of this musical extravaganza lives on as the sons of the original troops from WWI gather to stage another memorable performance of skits and songs.

Kate Smith sings "God Bless America" for the first time. The film features performances by many stars, including a young, dashing Ronald Reagan. Even Irving Berlin himself sings his own rendition of "Oh, How I Hate To Get Up In The Morning" (sentiments every soldier shares). The musical numbers are lavish and innovative, especially the Stage Door Canteen sequence which features a wide variety of stars (see Bridgestone's Collectors Edition film version of the same name starring Kathrine Hepburn and Helen Hayes). Even the cameo performances are a pleasure to watch, including an interesting clip featuring boxing champ Joe Louis.

Mastered from a quality film print, This Is The Army is a toe-tapping, hand clapping delightful feature the whole family will enjoy again and again.
