When Betty Hutton begins to write a letter, she is shown in medium shot and she is obviously just scribbling on the paper, but after the cut to an over-the-shoulder shot, the writing does not match and it is neat and legible. See more »
This film is an interesting piece of US moral boosting propaganda, though any black folks watching it, particularly those in the services at the time must have wondered how they fitted in to the war effort. A highlight (pardon the pun) is Bing and Sonny's rendition of 'Accentuate The Positive' whilst in blackface, which along with minstrelsy in general was beginning to be challenged at the time, pace ''Amos and Andy". Notions of minstrelsy and happy black folks on de old plantation were beginning to be usurped by jazz, rhythm and blues by 1944, but the producers must have thought this would rally the populace. The storyline is banal. The dancers try their best with the limited resources available.
