As we watch today's spoiled youth mock and malign our troops who are in harm's way, and as we recall a generation who came of age in the 60's and 70's who considered it "cool" to hate and spit on our troops and burn recruitment centers, sometimes I need a reminder that it wasn't always that way. There was a time when Americans got behind our troops and our leaders, and back then, a pro-America, pro-war-effort Hollywood actually led the way.
Here's a little gem I found consisting of veteran actor William Frawley (known to many later in life as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo's grumpy landlord Fred Mertz or Bub O'Casey on My Three Sons) leading a movie matinee patriotic sing-along about supporting our war effort and buying war bonds during World War Two.
Catchy, ain't it?
It's ironic that he's dressed as an academic. Maybe those sheltered shitbird Columbia U. kids could learn a thing or two from "Professor" Frawley.
