    Now that's when Hollywood stars were REALLY great...not like the ones in Hollywierd now-a-days who can't act, dance or sing! As C.W. stated, they had class back then.

  5. Hedy Lamar was too, sort of. Well, Navy actually. She designed a proximity fuse for torpedoes.
    What a woman.

  6. http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/1943.html ....very cool info

    1943 Following American involvement in the war manufacturers around the US became as efficient at producing war machines as they had been producing other goods with companies like ford and GM managing to change from cars to bombs and aircraft engines and at the same time due to the number of men overseas fighting the war using more women for manufacturing a total of 18 million women were employed. Due to shortages America sees it's first rationing. Italian and German forces surrender in North Africa as the war in Europe starts to turn the Allies way. The Glenn Miller Orchestra provided the most popular music of the time.

  7. These were the AMERICAN actors who fought in the war or helped sell war bonds to help the USA defeat their enemies, unlike todays @#$#@$%%^& who help the USA's enemies defeat us!
