“The Best Medicine: Classic WWII Comedies”

Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, in cooperation with our community partner, the SS Red Oak Victory, is pleased to present our fall film series which will highlight some of Hollywood’s classic comedies with a WWII theme. 10/19/17, 11/16/17 & 12/21/17

The American historian Stephen Ambrose called World War II “history’s greatest catastrophe.” Yet even in the face of this greatest of tragedies, we take solace in the wise words of King Solomon, “a merry heart doeth good like a medicine,” or, as we say today, “laughter is the best medicine.” This film series will feature the following films:
