Description
If you were born in the 40s, your decade began with the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt to an unprecedented third term. America was isolating itself from the rumblings of war in Europe. Workers got the 40-hour work week, and nylon stockings went on sale for the first time. Disney Studios released Fantasia and Pinocchio, while Glen Miller supplied one of the decade's signature songs, "In the Mood." This set's feature film is 'Til the Clouds Roll By (1946), an all-star MGM biopic of Jerome Kern, with musical numbers by Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Cyd Charisse, June Allyson, Dinah Shore, Lena Horne, and Angela Lansbury, among many others. Highlights include Garland's "Look for the Silver Lining,'' a mini-production of Show Boat, Lansbury's "How D'Ya Like to Spoon With Me?'' and Horne's "Why Was I Born?" Along with an interactive timeline, there's a television episode from 1949 (Enter the Lone Ranger, starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels), five classic 1940s commercials, and five signature 1940s movie trailers.
