Thank Your Lucky Stars (1-Oct-1943)

Director: David Butler

Writers: Norman Panama; Melvin Frank; James V. Kern; Everett Freeman; Arthur Schwartz

Music and Lyrics by: Arthur Schwartz; Frank Loesser

Producer: Mark Hellinger

Keywords: Musical Comedy

Morale-booster produced by Warner Brothers during WWII. A cavalcade of studio stars sing and dance, some of them with, to put it bluntly, limited singing ability. Especially John Garfield. Eddie Cantor carries the show with his singing talent and self-deprecation -- he plays both a lampoon of himself and an Eddie Cantor look-a-like, whose career is sidelined because he looks too much like Eddie Cantor.
