Trivia

On the wartime movie Stage Door Canteen (1943), this program notes that "In 1943, Hollywood glorified New York's Stage Door Canteen in a movie of the same name and the public responded to its wartime sentiments by making it a big box-office attraction because the story was sympathetic to the romantic problems of the hostesses who fell in love with soldiers scheduled to go overseas. Audiences could identify with the theme of wartime separation because they were living it themselves . . . Stage Door Canteen was pure propaganda but it pointed out the loneliness of men and women during the [Second World] war when Saturday night was the loneliest night of the week." See more »
