Warner Brothers Leading the War Effort
...at home, that is. That's what this documentary is about, mainly. I was rather surprised about how much Warner Brothers did for the Allies during WWII. The film also focuses upon what the actors were doing as well. On the homefront, for example, Bette Davis came up with the idea to start the Hollywood Canteen. A place for the GI's to come to to mingle with the celebrities when they were home on break. Davis managed the entertainment hall where there were shows, opportunities for the GIs to dance with or dine with the celebrities who volunteered their time to be there to boost their moral and show their support. It's a very good documentary.
Asian Point of View
Hollywood must have been short sighted if this film represents their view of WWII. From an Asian perspective this film is lacking quite a bit of balance. The partiality towards the rich and famous can be contrasted to those Asian Americans in concentration camps in the US.
The Actors During the War Years
It is impressive that so many Hollywood celebrities wanted to be seen as contributing to the war on the homefront. I imagine after looking at the incomplete list that some were motivated by patriotism while others were motivated by celebrity politicing. It's a pretty good film, but not the best I've seen about WWII Hollywood efforts.
Hollywood -The War Years

Wish present day Hollywood, music would join with the entertainers that are giving are troops a lift from home. Music, comedy, a voice from home. Dont like the President the war, at least support the troops.
