Well, I was hardly to know a week ago, as I swiftly watched and wrote up WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? (1945) for Forgotten By Fox, that the US’s fundamental relationship to its armed forces would have changed by the time of publication, was I? But I’ve never been fond of flagwaving so I don’t find anything embarrassing in the piece, even though you might not be in the mood…

Still, when I say this pageant/farce is scripted by the Marx Bros’ Morrie Ryskind and has songs by Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin, you might be… intrigued? And you can play two of the musical numbers, over at The Notebook.
