There are several Sousa marches in the film, along with one non-Sousa number, "Springtime In New York," which gives Debra Paget a chance to show off her considerable singing and dancing talents.
Bonus features, aside from the usual Spanish and English audio tracks, and Spanish, English, and French subtitles, include a brief history of 20th Century-Fox musicals, leading up to STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER; a mini-documentary about Sousa's musical contributions; original U.S. and U.K. trailers, and the alternate U.K. title sequence, where the film was issued, for unknown reasons, under the title Marching Along, the Sousa autobiography on which the film was based. In addition, there are also galleries of press clippings, promotional materials from the film, and still photos. The packaging is somewhat misleading; the bonus features are listed as being exclusive to the Blu-ray disc, but are on the DVD as well. The DVD has the film in Standard Definition; the Blu-ray in High Definition.
An excellent five-star movie.
This movie is fun and stirring, with great music and some really good vignettes. I especially enjoyed the Atlanta scene. Unlike another reviewer, I enjoyed the Robert Wagner/Debra Paget sub-plot. Both - especially Wagner - were charming. But who thought up those names? Willie and Lily Little? Really? Since they were not actual characters in real life, I would have thought that names less silly could have been used. But that's just a minor complaint.
Clifton Webb was never better and Ruth Hussey was perfect as his wife. I
