"With this feature film DVD, A2ZCDS brings back this hilarious musical comedy that combines the awesome talents of some of the best artists of the time - The Andrews Sisters, who sold over 100 million copies of their albums, the debonair Dick Foran and the gifted Joe Lewis. The magnificent musical score and outstanding vocals enthrall you, while the inimitable Shemp Howard has you in splits with his antics. The few romantic interludes you witness are well placed and help the narrative along nicely. This classic movie is sprinkled generously with solos, duets, trios and choruses, not to forget some memorable trumpet solos. An all-time favorite musical, it was produced at the height of World War II as a tribute and inspiration to the soldiers who fought for the country. Witness this fascinating, timeless movie extravaganza, which is certain to enthrall you with some of the most captivating song and dance sequences from the 40s!"
"‘Private Buckaroo’ is a real treat - something like M.A.S.H. meets Fiddler on the Roof. If it’s also unusual, it’s because it was pertinent to the issues of a period that we may not be familiar with. I loved the bittersweet treatment of the draft, and the satirized Army camp atmosphere. This one is a classic old movie for all generations."
Luther Prescott, (Fort Smith, ARKANSAS)
"It was such a pleasure watching this movie (Private Buckaroo) which I’d first seen over half a century ago. It really took me back. I think it is very important that such feature films be preserved and reissued for posterity - as you have done. I congratulate A2ZCDS on its initiative."
