Vtg Original 16mm Movie Here Come The Waves Bing Crosby 3 Reels US Army WWII NR!

This listing is for a vintage original 16mm movie titled 'Here Come The Waves', starring Bing Crosby. It comes from a large collection of 16mm movies that we will be selling over the next few weeks. These were movies that were shipped by the US Army to military bases all over the world during WWII to show to the troops. They were then put in storage for the past 70 years, and have just been discovered. The outer case is stamped 'O.M.P.S. U.S. ARMY'. There are three film reels inside the case. They look to be in good overall condition with a slight vinegar smell. The last few feet of each film reel shows creasing and wear. We do not have the equipment to view the film, so it is being sold as-is. Please see the photos below, and contact us with any questions before bidding. We have a low opening bid so don't miss your chance to win!

Here Come the Waves 99 min Comedy, Musical, Romance December 18, 1944 (USA)

Bing Crosby is in top form in the musical comedy Here Come the Waves co-starring Betty Hutton as identical twins! Johnny Cabot (Crosby) is a swell and stylish entertainer who gets enlisted by Uncle Sam to serve in the Navy, despite being turned down earlier for color blindness. His poor sight makes it just about impossible for him to tell the difference between identical twin sisters (Hutton) who try to put the make on him. The swooning crooner soon discovers, however, that fellow shipmate Windy (Sonny Tufts) has his sights set on one of the twins and plans on making his own kind of waves to get his gal. Double crosses and mistaken identities collide hilariously in this zany romp through Uncle Sam's fleet. Featuring Bing singing such standout hits as "Accentuate the Positive," "Let's Take the Long Way Home" and "I Promise You", Here Come the Waves is delightful, top-notch Hollywood fun!
