In the film, a series of famous actors and actresses (and a few unknowns) entertain troops about to be sent overseas. (The action takes place at the Stage Door Canteen, a real-world venue similar to the Hollywood Canteen, in which entertainers of all political persuasions gladly participated.)
One of the hosts plays a little game with the audience, offering a prize for the best answer to a question.
She asks the ladies: "If you could be any woman in the world, who it would it be?"
One claims first prize right away by shouting out this gem:
Not surprisingly, the Stage Door Canteen audience erupts in hardy cheers.
Kind of hard to picture any film today showing something similar, at least without a disapproving finger wag. If they did, and did it regularly, the war against the jihadis would be over inside a year.
