Storyline

Narrated by Johnny Carson, this two hour documentary shows us how Hollywood went to war on the home front with their own army of technicians, special effects people, directors and of course, a gallery of stars who's deeds and actions during those bleak times not only helped lift the morale of the people, but packed a wallop with those serving overseas that was more powerful than any gun.

This documentary, narrated by Johnny Carson, is one of the best documentaries, that were made in the 1970's, that depicted what America's home front went through during WWII. The other noted documentary was BROTHER, CAN YOU SPARE A DIME? which depicted the Depression years just before the Second World War. Both films gave you the essence of being there and yet cannot be seen or purchased. Johnny Carson's narration in LIFE GOES TO WAR was right on key.
