Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day.  Have a look at this link for the scene in "Holiday Inn" (1942) which features the above Bing Crosby in a musical salute to the day.   Below, have a look at a 1942 rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" by Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians.  Don't forget to stand.

(And don't forget to scroll to the bottom of the page and pause the music so you can hear the video.)

Happy Independence Day! Thanks for posting the video. I had goosebumps throughout, and got chocked up somewhere in the middle.

Happy 4th to you, too, Lucie. Can't beat those WWII patriotic clips for sentiment.
