Being a fan of irreverent comedies AND a fan of the period in which this movie was set, I have to state this was one of my all time favorite Films!! The music is no different. The upbeat mixed with the underlying villainous tones sets the pace for the soundtrack. The first time you hear the Wild Bill Kelso theme, your mind automatically conjures up the image of a P-40 Tomahawk landing in the middle of nowhere to stop for gas. I highly reccommend this music to ANYONE who loves movies.

"A must for fans of John Williams.Reminiscent at times of Indiana Jones, Close Encounters, Superman, and Star Wars, yet still shining with its own worth. Fun, energetic, memorable and entirely charming.Oddly, the pure orchestral experience is marred by a "comic" recorded cannon blast used as percussion and one very distracting yet brief John Bellushi voice-over.If you only want the orchestral version of the 1941 march, look for it on the John Williams/Boston Pops collections. If you love the sound of John Williams' late-seventies/early-eighties scores, buy 1941!"

"The march from "1941" is propulsive and exciting, and shows us that we are listening to the music for a comedy. John Williams goes beyond this movie, presenting us with wild tunes that keeps us marvelled and entertained. The CD presents us with incredible marches that only Williams knows how to write. And let's not forget 'Swing, Swing, Swing', a track that definetely presents us with a great dancing rhythm entangled with comedy. This is a great CD, in spite of its thirty eight minutes."
