Hollywood Canteen, 1944, All-Star Cast



I highly recommend this 1944 feel-good, World War II era morale-booster film. This is one of my favorite scenes with Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet who play themselves in this movie. In fact, all the stars; Bette Davis, Jack Benny, Roy Rogers (another favorite scene), Joan Crawford, Joan Leslie, Barbara Stanwyck, the list goes on - play themselves.

The story is about a star-operated entertainment club for the servicemen. I won't spoil the plot which is a poignant
one.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.








Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
