of colors and fragrances on display. History of Marines in film Beginning with The ''Star Spangled Banner'' (1918), the Marines discovered the use of motion pictures. In exchange for a favourable portrayal that stimulated recruiting and gave an impressive view to the public and Congress (United States Congress), the Marines provided uniformed extras, locations, equipment, and technical advisers that provided their expertise to the producers. In 1926 MGM's (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) ''Tell It to the Marines'' and Fox's (20th Century Fox) ''What Price Glory? (What Price Glory? (1926 film))'' directed by Raoul Walsh nearly led to a court battle to see whether one studio could copyright the Marines to prevent other films from being made.

Certain parasitic liver diseases (parasitic disease) may be risk factors as well.
