Bracken Also Featured
Bigger and better film musicals
seem to be the order of the day right
now in Hollywood, with plenty of
well-known featured entertainers
supporting the stars.
While the country is engaged in the
war production and defense effort,
music and laughs are vital in build

rising to fill the need.
The trend is typlified in the new
Paramount fllmusical, “The Fleet’s
In,” which is chockful of gobs, girls,
gags and tunes, and stars three of
the screen’s most popular personali
ties—Dorothy Lamour. William Hol

bered roles, and Jimmy Dorsey and
his orchestra, featuring Bob Eberly
and Helen O’Connell, vocalists.
“The Fleet's In” offers seven new
song hits, many of which are sung
by Lamour herself.
And here’s what Dotty says about
pictures like “The Fleet’s In”.
“Call them ‘escape’ pictures if you
like; but it is not from the reality
of our position and the Job that
Americans must do that we are es-!
caping from. We can still be aware
of the tremendous effort we must all
make for victory and still be able to
laugh at the same time and appre
