From Jerry Edwards : This second Canadian bond film makes good use of animation from Snow White. Instead of marching home from work, the dwarfs march into town to exchange their diamonds for savings certificates. The first six dwarfs rush into a post office to buy their bonds, but the door slams shut before Dopey, trailing the others, can enter. But he spies a nearby bank, which also sells the bonds - and leaves the bank with a big pile of bonds. The short ends with war images and slogans such as "Keep Your Money Fighting" and "Invest In Victory."

Some entertainment value but mainly interesting from a historical perspective.

From Ryan : I find this short funny at the part where Dopey goes into the bank to buy war bonds after the door of the post office shuts on him. Like Jerry Edwards, I find this short more interesting historicalwise.
