Yankee Doodle Dandy.
Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) is one of Hollywood's greatest, grandest and slickest musicals. The nostalgic, shamelessly-patriotic, entertaining film also supported the war effort as it paid tribute in its mostly fictional story to a popular Irish/American entertainer and the grand American gentleman of the theatre in the early 20th century.

  1. My favorite Musical on film of all time: Yankee Doodle Dandy. My favorite Musical: The Beach Boys in progress. Women's favorite Eye Cosmetic: Maybelline. That is why America celebrates Family Freedom & Fun for everyone. BB1
