Skirmish on the Home Front was interesting for the stars of the period taking part in the benefits of war bonds
9 July 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on YouTube. It stars Betty Hutton, Alan Ladd, Susan Hayward, and William Bendix with the first two as a couple who's trying to save the war bonds for the future and the other using them to buy a really fine house at present time. After that segment is over, a supposed government official tells and shows the balance between spending money and consumer goods before then showing those same couples in a peaceful future with Hutton & Ladd now living luxuriously and Hayward & Bendix not so much. I'll stop there and just say this was quite interesting a take on what it was like living during the years of World War II with all the talk about bonds and trying to save money and all that. So on that note, Skirmish on the Home Front is worth a look for anyone interested in these vintage public service shorts.
