| The Buccaneer Act Three
What we have here is Demille's THE BUCCANEER showing just the highlights of the Battle of New Orleans and the celebratory party afterwards, with some fine color photography and no story. As a matter of fact, the same actor plays Andy Jackson in both flicks.

In 1939 this was a mildly interesting short subject of the American History as Hagiography type, but little else. Most of the story is told in pompous voice-over, with lines like "Only his deep loyalty to the American people" and "Andrew Jackson was the first president sprung from the common people and his door was always open to his friends."

I would suggest that you read a good book on the subject instead of wasting ten minutes on this effort.
