Decent Short
Forty Boys and a Song (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Oscar-nominated short takes a look at The Robert Mitchell Boys Choir school, which was a non-profit school that would teach boys not only their school work but also music. The documentary short talks about what goes on at the school in terms of what is being taught but for the majority of the running time we get the boys singing. "Home on the Range" is probably the highlight of the music, which is pretty much all there is. There's really no sense of direction or style as the film is pretty laid back and straight forward. These boys would eventually be seen in Bing Crosby's GOING MY WAY, which is where most will remember them.
