The Hollywood Canteen (Book)


The Hollwyood Canteen (Book)
The Hollywood Canteen was Hollywood's finest contribution to the war effort. From 1942 through 1945, over 3 million servicemen came through it doors on their way to fight in the Pacific and in Europe -- some never to return. There, in a converted barn in the middle of Hollywood, soldiers were fed, entertained by and danced with some of the biggest stars in the world. The Canteen was free to all servicemen or women, regardless of race, inviting them to jive to the music of Kay Kyser and Harry James, laugh at Bob Hope's jokes, be handed sandwiches by celebrities and dance with Hollywood's most beautiful actress, like Rita Hayworth. 208 pages & 170 photos.
