Residents of NYC’s Little Italy district celebrated V-J Day (Victory over Japan) on August 14, 1945. Just imagine looking up from the street, at all those people celebrating the end of war.

      1. Loved Monuments Men and the bitter sweet story. A much more modern story than Bataan.

        I liked Bataan’s storyline. Love Rod Taylor in his role, and love the hokey ending and Hollywood gimmicks–pre-CGI.

        It did make me wonder how many of them served during the war and what kind of trauma they might have endured to make the film.

      2. War movies make me sad. So you saw the 1943 movie and then the recent Matt Damon one? I saw Mon Men available on our cable. Might give it a try.
