I saw that movie at a post theater at Fort Leonard Wood,MO, back in
'59. Quelle coincidence! The "flick" (according to Mario Pei, a
borrowing from Britspeak) was laughed at, since we knew that Sinatra
hadn't served a day in The War, 4-F because of a burst eardrum. Even
During The War, Sinatra concerts caused riots in NYC, if the fleet was
in port.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
