Quick Overview

3 classic shorts starring comedian, singer and actress Betty Hutton

SKIRMISH ON THE HOME FRONT (1944)


Promotional short extolling the virtues of the American government's wartime Economic Stabilization Plan.

 


STRICTLY G.I. (1943)


A filmed broadcast of the Command Performance radio programs in which various Hollywood stars appeared and performed in accordance with letter requests from American service men stationed around the world. Transcriptions were made of each program and sent to American posts and camps around the world. This entry (Army-Navy Screen Magazine No. 20) was broadcast and filmed at a live performace at Camp Roberts, California. Lana Turner, via a request from a group of soldiers, fried a steak, which was brought on stage accompanied by armed guards since this was a rationed and rare item during the war years. Betty Hutton sung "Murder, He Says" and Judy Garland did "Over the Rainbow", and all three guest stars swapped quips and banter with emcee Bob Hope, with Hope usually on the butt-end of the jokes.

 


VINCENT LOPEZ AND HIS ORCHESTRA (1939)


This musical short begins with Vincent Lopez leading his orchestra in "Nola", the group's theme song. Suddenly, various musicians tell Lopez that they are tired of the theme song and refuse to play it anymore. They sing and play other songs instead. Then the group plays familiar tunes of the day, accompanying band vocalists and virtuoso whistler Fred Lowery.
