COMMAND PERFORMANCE
This fabulous WWII variety show, produced by the War Department and broadcast to all of the troops, was a love letter from Hollywood to our servicemen overseas. Every Sunday evening for half an hour, the show was comprised of whatever the GIs wrote in and asked for. Frank Sinartra, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, the Andrews Sisters, Red Skelton, Dinah Shore, Jimmy Durante and a parade of stars performed on the show by request, and they did it for free. But it didnít stop there. The show provided a recording of a GIís dog back home, a hog calling contest, sports talk, and the sound of an alarm clock being smashed. And then there were the features that the men could never have dreamed of: an all-jive show featuring Tommy Dorsey, Lionel Hampton, Count Basie and Spike Jones; a Dick Tracy spoof with an all-star cast, and a speech by General Dwight D. Eisenhower directly to the troops.
