WAVE Dot Forbes was in this sea of women during the filming of Here Come the WAVES at Hunter College in the Bronx.
This was June in New York City. We had to wear our Navy blue uniforms. Serge, wool serge. Marching. And I don’t — I hated the song that Johnny Mercer wrote. I thought I’ll never hear or listen to another one of his songs. We had to sing it over and over and over and over and over. Of course, I realize today what’s involved in editing and they had to do.
The still is from the Paramount picture Here Comes the WAVES. It premiered during Christmas Week, 1944.
