    As a student of the U.S. Army's transition from horse cavalry to mechanized cavalry in the 1941-1942 time period I found this film to be an amazing resource. Because the Army actively participated in the production of the film the uniforms, headgear, insignia, vehicles and equipment reflect what was in actual use at the time. I wish it was available on DVD, I would sure like to have a copy. If only it had been shot in color!!

  • THE BUGLE SOUNDS-MARVELOUS!

    Wallace Beery in a role that highlights his personality. What a wonderful actor. This is a great movie that everyone should see!

    There is a brief scene of calisthentics among new recruits that appears to apply a contemporaneous system of teaching close order drill by having the troops themselves vocalize the commands. Known as the Cadence System of Close Order Drill, it was devised by Bernard Lentz (USMA, 1905) in 1917. Col. Lentz published updated editions of his book on the subject through the 1950's. It is no longer used, but this clip may be the only way to see it in action (though applied to calisthentics, rather than drill). In WWII Col Lentz was CO at Ft Slocum NY, where his system influenced the "Duckworth Chant," aka the familiar military marching cadence still in use today around the globe.
