I'm interested in hearing about people's opinions on comedies created during WWII. I've got a blog devoted to the war years - http://hollywoodatwar.blogspot.com - and it was a fascinating time for the film community. WWII was certainly a dark, worrisome time, and I'm wondering if any of the comedies of that period (1940-1945) addressed the war, even obliquely. For example, a friend suggested I watch "Down Argentine Way," a 1940 comedy with Betty Grable because it was really all about the US shifting its focus from war-plagued Europe to South America - an interest that turned Carmen Miranda into a superstar. Did the War really do that? Don't know if there are any definite answers, but I'd like to hear other members' insights and opinions.
