The Man Who Came To Dinner

Not all movies made in WWII were about the fighting. Americans needed to laugh, too. Monty Woolley and Bette Davis starred in The Man Who Came to Dinner, a comedy about a New York celebrity stranded in a Ohio home after a fall physically disables all but his put downs, which are legend. Here is Wolley right after his character's accident gleefully spitting venom at anyone who comes near. Still funny, the movie surely provided a respite from dark days.
