Hollywood Canteen (15-Dec-1944)

Director: Delmer Daves

Writer: Delmer Daves

Music Adapted by: Ray Heindorf

Producer: Alex Gottlieb

Keywords: Musical

At the Hollywood Canteen, a USO-type organization, soldiers could stop by and get free food and drinks, maybe meet a movie star. G.I. Robert Hutton ("Slim"), on one-week leave, is the 1 millionth to enter the Canteen, winning an expense-paid weekend with Joan Leslie, coincidentally the actress he's been dreaming about. They meet and fall in love. It could happen. Nearly all stars from Warner (and some from Republic) appear in this musical showcase.
