The Joint is Really Jumpin’! Judy Garland and José Iturbi

Uncle Sam had a good time last night and so did the thousand and more of his nieces and nephews who swelled the Third War Loan Drive by $534,000 at the War Bond première of “Thousands Cheer.” The first night audience went away from the Astor completely satisfied; they had done themselves and their country a good deed, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer had rewarded them with two solid hours of magnificent entertainment. Turning the evening over to the Treasury Department was as appropriate as it was patriotic, for “Thousands Cheer” is a musical with an Army-camp background, and in Technicolor, even the guard house never looked lovelier.
