Worth 1,000 Words for VETERANS DAY: DANNY KAYE

WHEN UP IN ARMS was released in 1944, WWII was still a grim reality. UP IN ARMS provided musical-comedy entertainment laced with wartime patriotism, and featured Danny Kaye in his first starring role as a hypochondriac drafted into the Army. He sang (or is the better word performed?) The Lobby Number and Melody in 4F. This vintage still features most of the film's stars: (From left) CONSTANCE DOWLING, DINAH SHORE, DANA ANDREWS, DANNY KAYE, and LYLE TALBOT. [from Steve Crum's showbiz memorabilia collection]
