| Great War Song!
This is a wonderful soundie, with The Four Ginger Snaps. They were a popular singing group in the 40's, with three ladies and a guy, who appeared in quite a few soundies, but this is one of few that survives. Their an entertaining, humorous group with great personality, rhythm, and harmony. The song their singing Keep Smiling is a song encouraging everyone to keep smiling because we'll win the war and buy war bonds to support the troops. The soundies gave black singers and dancers a chance to express themselves and present their talents and form of entertainment in their own way, and it's very entertaining to see. Soundies were the first type of music videos, if you ever get a chance to check out these soundies you should, to enjoy a part of entertainment history that's bygone, but will live forever through film, and its a chance to discover talent that isn't widely recognized. These soundies definitely display the popular dances, songs, and styles of the era, that you will enjoy, and you may see there's not much difference in soundies of the past and the music videos of today, there was always sex appeal.
