WAVE Dot Forbes remembers being disappointed when she finally saw her film debut in the movie Here Come the WAVES.
When we got to see the movie, there were a couple of little clips before the movie ever started and that was it! (laughs). I thought, “All of that and in that heat,” it was like 90 degree heat and you’re in wool serge, blue serge, it was just (laughs). Scottie and I shake our heads when we think back. But we did it, because you do what you were told and all.
The still of WAVES marching at Hunter College is from the Paramount picture Here Comes the WAVES. It premiered during Christmas Week, 1944.
