    This is a great value. It features Bette Davis singing, and wait til you see Olivia DeHavilland chewing gum and dancing along with Ida Lupino-males Laugh Out Loud. And, then there is James Cagney dancing in Yankee Doodle Dandy.

          I purchased this product for Hollywood Canteen which I had never seen. My father had talked about Barbara Stanwyck serving him coffee there and how nice she was. I feel like I have a piece of history with this movie, and I have seen Yankee Doodle Dandy before which I enjoyed as well.
          To me, the other two movies are just ok, but I would buy this dvd again for sure. I plan on sharing this dvd with my niece as she enjoys old movies as well.

            Comments about this product:

            These Musicals from Warner Brothers kept the morale up on the home front during WW11. Great songs and acting. Loved James Cagney in Yankee Doodle Dandy. Hollywood Canteen, Thank Your Lucky Stars, This Is The Army, all excellent. Every star who ever worked at this time at Warner Brothers were in one or more of these movies. When I saw Anne Sheridan, Jane Wyman and others singing it was incredible. Loved watching. Also very informative information on newsreel coverage and cartoons

              These musicals showed how the entertainment industry build up morale on the home front during WW11. Musical numbers excellent. The extra features very informative. James Cagney excellent in Yankee Doodle Dandy. Thank Your Lucky Stars, This Is The Army and Hollywood Canteen excellent. They do not make musicals like this anymore.
