Soon after America entered World War II, some of Hollywood's foremost figures signed up to do their part. James Stewart and Clark Gable joined the fight in uniform, while Bob Hope, Marlene Dietrich, and Carole Lombard risked their lives in USO performances troops near battlefronts. Illustrated with spectacular, rarely seen photos, this history surveys the significant contributions of Bette Davis, Orson Welles, Walt Disney, Alfred Hitchcock, and Lena Horne, while also noting the more complex moral dilemmas faced by European stars like Hedy Lamarr and Emil Jannings.
