Audience Reviews for Stars and Stripes Forever (Marching Along)

Clifton Webb and Ruth Hussey work well together and make an endearing couple. Debra Paget is incredibly beautiful, Robert Wagner extremely handsome but the story is pure hollywood pap. However the music is rousing and wonderful and the production levels high. A most enjoyable entertainment.
