Hosted by comedian David Steinberg, this DVD highlights the role of celebrities during the Second World War. Whether it was propaganda films, bond sales activities, or the Command Performance radio programs, Hollywood was there -- even Donald Duck argued that it was important to pay his taxes in support of the war effort. Showbiz Goes to War also features wartime appearances from Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, Jane Russell, Ronald Reagan, Gary Cooper, Frank Sinatra, and many more.
