Storyline

A look at the many ways Hollywood contributes to the war effort. Stars and studio heads are in the service, cinematographers train soldier and sailors, John Ford heads a military film office, first-run films are shipped around the world for showing at bases, radio and movie personalities make stateside appearances, well-knows actors sell war bonds, actresses dance with servicemen at the Hollywood Canteen, and intrepid stars make overseas trips to entertain troops near the front. From training films to propaganda to morale boosting: Hollywood does it all. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I have really been interested in The March Of Time series of documentaries, and this is one of the very first ones that I ever saw. Time marches on, and so does this great documentary, I mean, great indeed! Show-Business At War is one of the best installments in the The March Of Time, and not only that, but it is one of my favorites! I loved this, it is great all the way through from start to finish! There is nothing negative that I have to say about this fabulous documentary, nothing at all, not one single thing negative, nothing! So in short, this documentary is perfect, we see a lot of stars and famous people in this, and that really makes this great!

So all in all, this is one of the best documentary installments in The March Of Time Series. And not only that, but it is one of my favorites. If you haven't seen this then you should see it. You think I am exaggerating? See if for yourself, no even better than that, take my word for it, it is very interesting and fabulous! So in short, take the time to watch this, because you are really going to find this interesting just like I did!
