The Germans may have had their Panzer divisions, The Japanese the element of surprise...but we had Benny Goodman! How could we lose?
"Do Your Research, 'denscul'."
Here I am remembering and honoring the overwhelming sacrifices offered by the "Greatest Generation" on 2018 Memorial Day Sunday morning and I am assaulted by this individual who, on 20 February 2013, misrepresents the historical record and does not deliver the truth. I. The U.S. became involved in Vietnam in 1953 with a Republican president, a Republican Senate and a Republican House of Representatives after the French were marshaled out by the warring factions. II. President Kennedy and Attorney General Bobby Kennedy were staging the removal of all United States involvement in Southeast Asia during the late summer/early fall of 1963. 22 November 1963 ended all that hope! III. Nixon lied and misrepresented his intentions by letting another 30,000 young people die in Vietnam by continuing the lie to 1973, five years after "pledging" to end the war in Vietnam in 1968. Yes, the World War II generation will always be saluted for representing the best our country has offered in securing our freedoms and our future. Petty comments and misguided statements only fan the fire of hatred and distrust. Our nation's future can only remain stable and well grounded with truthful discourse and reasoned thinking. We should not and cannot dissolve into internal strife after what those brave and humble men and women gave up during the early to middle 1940s.
When Holywood decides whom to back.
As a Viet Nam vet, everytime I see a film like this, I wonder where are the films made by Hollywood about my generations War. As far as I know, most of the men and women who fought in this "war" did not start it, want it, or was their deaths or inuries any different than those suffered during WWII. Although I was an ROTC Reserve Officer, not even I wanted to be called to active duty, to serve in a war that not supported like WWII. The good and bad were not as clearly defined, and Hollywood seemed to put politics ahead of the majority of those who served in those jungles, not at their wish, but at the wish of many polticians, like JFK and LBJ. Nixon, who ended the war, perhaps more slowly than I would have liked, did not send more of us than his predessors. Yet, he seems to get the blame. Was Hollywood partly the blame for this misconception of history? Hollywood certainly did not think Jane Fonda was similar to Toyko Rose or Lord Ha Ha. Yet all three added to the propoganda of the people who were shooting at Americans. The people getting shot had nothing to do with politics, and were just counting the days when they could go home. Is it anywonder why so many of my generation dislike Fonda and John Kerry, who told some lies during his campaign to become Senator and Presidential Candidate. If this all sounds like too much politics, its just History without the political varnish of propoganda. This film is wonderful, for two reasons. Its about American celebrities giving their time and talent for the morale of its men and women. A generation later, the same industry made up its mind to treat my generation with contempt. Keep that in mind when watching this film.
Stage Door Canteen (1943)
- James Higgins
Rather ordinary and routine, designed to lift war morale. The appearances of many major stars from the time is a big plus, and being made in the war years makes it particularly fascinating for me, I've always been a WW2 buff.
A fortunate discovery
This was a beautiful movie. The musical acts were fantastic. The storyline was very touching. That last scene put tears in my eyes.
Why it should be released
- Elizabth Beck
I just saw this movie on TCM sunday morning. This movie hits to the hearts of every American why we need to support our troops even today. I was deeply moved by how the producer of this movie hit the nail on the head what our country stands for and why we fight and honor these heroes. I have friends fighting inlisted in the serivces. You should make this avaible on dvd so I can send them a copy. Thank you.
