| Excellent..Inspiring...!
I was lucky enough to see this short on TCM. It was broadcast on Memorial Day 2014. As a"Boomer", I knew lots of WWII stories from the adults in my young life. My father was in the U.S. Navy. Jimmy Stewart was a great patriot, as were most actors, performers, sports figures and celebrities during this troubled time for our nation.Watching this short gives great insight into the mindset of a nation hell bent on victory. A collective resolve that I am afraid this nation will never again experience and I hope never again for the same reasons. Footage of the manufacturing facilities was extremely fascinating to me. The salaries quoted by Jimmy Stewart amazed me! $450.00 a month would have been highly desirable in 1942! My dad was making only $75 a week 10 years after this film was produced! This great little film left me a little swimmy eyed..! A must see short.
