Trivia

According to this documentary, World War II was a time of a great need for entertainment and the movies were a great way for the citizens on the home front to get entertainment. Large movie attendance during the Second World War can be attributed to such factors as gas rationing, limited travel, overcrowding in cities, patriotism, support of the war effort, little or nil unemployment, blackouts, morale building and surprisingly, high wages. Entertainment also came from radio and the stage, the latter of which Hollywood movie stars entertained on, also for the war effort. See more »
