It's THE BUGLE SOUNDS, directed by S. Sylvan Simon, who I believe is sitting on the tank with Wallace Beery.

The tank is a M2 pre WW2 light tank.

Could this be "The Bugle Sounds" (1942) directed by S. Sylvan Simon (who may be the mystery talent with the sun glasses)?

well the director is S. Sylvan Simon - how about The Bugle Sounds

A Bob Hope WWII film, "Tanks for the Memories"?

Something directed by S. Sylvan Simon

S. Sylvan Simon directing Wallace Beery in The Bugle Sounds

It's from "The Bugle Sounds" with Wallace Beery.
