On second thought - here's one

 

Wartime rationing influences the film: dead bodies are called "red points," which

referred to wartime meat rationing, and 'his' car has a "B" gasoline rationing sticker

in the lower passenger-side window, indicating he was essential to the war effort and

therefore allowed eight gallons of gasoline per week.

 

Film title ?

Alright

 

 

After its completion, 'the studio' did not release this film until they had turned

 

out a backlog of war-related films. Because the war was ending, the studio

 

feared the public might lose interest in those films, while this film's subject was

 

not time-sensitive. Attentive observers will note indications of the film's wartime

 

production, such as period dialogue, pictures of President Franklin D. Roosevelt,

 

and a woman taxi driver who says to 'him': "I'm your girl."
