HOLLYWOOD CANTEEN: This musical is set in the USO nightclub where the biggest names in show business entertained the troops during World War II. HOLLYWOOD CANTEEN boasts an all-star cast including Jack Benny, Bette Davis, Ida Lupino, Jane Wyman, and Peter Lorre. Corporal Ed Slim (Robert Hutton) develops a crush on one of the show's stars, Joan Leslie (as herself). Knowing he is merely an enlistee, he thinks it is unlikely he could ever successfully woo her. However, he is lucky enough to win a night out on the town with her when he's named the canteen's millionth visitor. THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS: Many of the stars on the Warner Bros. roster make appearances--including Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, and Errol Flynn--in this lavish musical. The plot concerns an egomaniacal, mean-spirited movie star, who is making life a living hell for the producers of a benefit show. Meanwhile, a nerdy tour guide is finding it impossible to find work as an actor--because of his strong resemblance to that uncouth film actor. That all changes when the producers decide to have the troublesome entertainer kidnapped...and replaced by his look-alike. Will the scheme succeed? THIS IS THE ARMY: Irving Berlin's musical tribute honors the patriotic efforts of American soldiers during World Wars I and II. Berlin appears as himself, as does singer Kate Smith, who delivers a rousing rendition of "God Bless America" for which she received the Congressional Gold Medal. THIS IS THE ARMY won an Academy Award for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
