Often fascinating look at legends of the era, with Borzage's fervent emotionalism. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- An exercise in unfocused overkill that, ultimately, steamrolled its good intentions under 132 grueling minutes of flag-waving hokum.

Rating: 5/5 -- Period talent, and WHAT talent!, in this WWII morale builder.

Product Description:

Dozens of important Hollywood stars make appearances in this wartime musical with the bands of Benny Goodman, Guy Lombardo, Count Basie and Freddy Martin. The story is about three soldiers who meet three girls before going overseas. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Song ("We Mustn't Say Good Bye").

Plot Synopsis:

During World War II, the American Theatre Wing ran New York's Stage Door Canteen for the benefit of soldiers on leave. It was frequented by many stars, some of whom graciously performed menial tasks, while others entertained the crowd. Dozens of those celebrities appear as themselves in this lavish musical about romances that blossom between canteen employees and soldiers. Tunes include "We Mustn't Say Goodbye", "Bombshell from Brooklyn", "The Lord's Prayer", "Ave Maria", and "Flight of the Bumble Bee".
