On April 20, 1940 "Til We Meet Again" was released. On May 10, 1940 a horde of fanatic, indoctrinated Nazi military was unleashed upon the trust and goodness of the peoples of Belgium, Netherlands ,and France. The France of Lavoisier, Voltaire , and Edith Piaf was soon subdued and overrun. The indomitable Winston Churchill took the reins of Great Britain on that day as Prime Minister. We who stood for the dignity of man, the soverign and inalienable worth of each, stood appalled but resolved.The outcome was in parlous and grave doubt. The drama "Til We Meet Again" entailed the exquisite beauty of Merle Oberon, the courage, valor and innate worth of George Brent, Geraldine Fitgerald, Frank McCUGH-not to be unduly chauvinistically Irish, and expressed the mores of a world long gone but celebrated as our "greatest generation" . We accord hereby a 10 to this work,which harkens and takes us back to a world and time before evil and death.
