"On The Flip Side of Hollyweird"


In contrast to the ideals, opinions and feelings of today's "Hollywonks," the real actors of yesteryear loved the United States.   They had both class and integrity.   With the advent of World War many of our actors went to fight rather than sit around and rant against this country we all love.   These heroes gave up wealth, opportunity, position and fame to become service men & women, many as simple "enlisted men".

We list here only 18 men from whom came more than 70 medals for their valor, ranging from Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, Distinguish Service Cross', Purple Hearts and one Congressional Medal of Honor.

So just remember that while the "Entertainers of 2004" have been all over the news media lately, I would like to remind you of what the entertainers of 1944 were doing 60 years ago.   Most of these brave men have since passed on.


Real Hollywood Heroes

James Doohan   ("Scotty" on Star Trek)     landed in Normandy with the U.S. Army on D-Day.

Donald Pleasance   (The Great Escape)     really was an R. A. F. pilot who was shot down, held prisoner and tortured by the Germans.

David Niven     was a Sandhurst graduate and Lt. Colonel of the British Commandos in Normandy.

Jimmy Stewart     Entered the Army Air Force as a private and worked his way to the rank of Colonel.   During World War II, Stewart served as a bomber pilot, his service record crediting him with leading more than 20 missions over Germany, and taking part in hundreds of air strikes during his tour of duty.   Stewart earned the Air Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, France's Croix de Guerre, and 7 Battle Stars during World War II.   In peace time, Stewart continued to be an active member of the Air Force as a reservist, reaching the rank of Brigadier General before retiring in the late 1950s.

Clark Gable   (Mega-Movie Star when war broke out)     Although he was beyond the draft age at the time the U.S. entered WW II, Clark Gable enlisted as a private in the AAF on Aug. 12, 1942 at Los Angeles.   He attended the Officers' Candidate School at Miami Beach, Fla. and graduated as a second lieutenant on Oct. 28, 1942.   He then attended aerial gunnery school and in Feb. 1943 he was assigned to the 351st Bomb Group at Polebrook where he flew operational missions over Europe in B-17s.   Capt. Gable returned to the U.S. in Oct. 1943 and was relieved from active duty as a major on Jun. 12, 1944 at his own request, since he was over-age for combat.

So, then-- how do you feel the real heroes of the silver screen acted when compared to the hollywonks today who spray out anti-American drivel as they bite the hands that feed them?   Can you imagine these stars of yesteryear saying they hate our flag, making anti-war speeches, marching in anti-American parades and saying they hate our president?  

I thought not, and neither did I!
