The Andrews Sisters in "Private Buckaroo"

Private Buckaroo

If you are an Andrews Sisters fan, I strongly recommend you set aside a rainy afternoon to watch the movie "Private Buckaroo".  The movie itself should manage to keep you entertained for about an hour, but it's the music that shines in this film.  I've just watched it again recently and it gets a little better every time.  Let me sum it up by describing it as "brain candy" with a great soundtrack.

Songs by The Andrews Sisters dominate this 1942 release including hits like "Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree", "Six Jerks in a Jeep", and the song I included below, "Three Little Sisters".  Altogether, the film features six songs by Patty, Laverne and Maxene.  Harry James plays a large part in the movie as well and his trumpet playing can be also heard throughout.

Watch: The Andrews Sisters perform "Three Little Sisters" from Private Buckaroo

Also, I can't forget to mention that Shemp Howard's role as Sgt. Muggsy had me looking up old classic Three Stooges clips afterwards.  Enjoy.
