Ozzie Nelsons and His Orchestra

This is what music videos were like during World War II. Of course there was no video at that time, so these kinds of short music films were presented in theaters. Many films like this were made to entertain the troops overseas and to boost morale.

This short film just titled “Ozzie Nelsons and His Orchestra” is from 1943. First Ozzie Nelson’s band plays a couple of tunes. Then in a musical skit Come On, Get Up, Ozzie can’t get out of bed in the morning. The army sargeant shows him how to get up! They also play Chinatown.

IN the last number, Ozzie sings and dancesI’m Dancin’ with The Mamas, With the Moola. This song is about how a guy from the lower classes gets to hobnob with rich young debutantes at the USO after joining the army and putting on a uniform.
