MGM is putting glamorous movie legend Marian Ames out to pasture, but this is 1944 and no time for self pity. Marian gathers her instrument playing gal pals from the Hollywood Canteen to entertain the troops in London. Her show is a rip roaring canteen extravaganza that features five archetypal film characters from the 1940s singing over 30 vintage classics. Laughs, emotional fireworks and air raids punctuate this hilarious and heart warming musical celebration.
