Synopsis:
Over 550 movie musicals were produced by Hollywood during the 1940's, quite an accomplishment for a country caught in the turmoil of World War II. Highlights of this programme include a young crooner named Frank Sinatra creating a furor among bobbysoxers around the USA...Pin-up girls like Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, Betty Hutton and June Haver reminding the boys overseas what they were fighting for...Bing Crosby and Bob Hope hit the road with a series of musical-comedy confections...Hollywood experimented with bringing black performers like Lena Horne to main screen fare in such films as "Stormy Weather" and "Cabin in the Sky".
