So ... On Sunday, I watched the Indy 500. Then, some Murder, She Wrote marathon. Then the Memorial Day celebration on PBS. Just sayin'.

I completely agree with Sepiatone.

I do not understand why TCM has never shown YANK IN THE RAF 1941 FROM FOX with Ty Power and Betty Grable.  It is a film about the time just before we entered WW2. It has levity, but it was giving a chance to view European and the  the Asian theaters a chance for American audiences to see that there is a crisis in the war in Europe. Thus we should keep our eyes open, which the countries such as France. Poland Belgium were conquered by the Nazis.

Here is the trailer for the . film.

Ty  became a real flying officer in the Pacific during World War II as a Marine.

Not enough blood, too many guts. I saw A Yank in the RAF a few weeks ago on YT. Entertaining,

but pretty cornball. This YT upload silenced all Betty's songs, so I guess there were some

copyright issues even after all these years. Or maybe the uploader just thought there were.

I did watch most of men in war and the steel helmet.

any war film with aldo ray is usually good.

Don't forget The Naked and the Dead (1958).

I have a feeling Nip probably prefers THE GREEN BERETS (1968) since it includes the Duke.
