WWII Era Jive – SNAFU 1944

Posted by Dance

Outtake from the movie: FOUR JILL’S IN A JEEP 1944
The term SNAFU was an acronym for “Situation Normal all F”d Up” or cleaned up to “Fouled Up”. The singers are from left to right Broadway dancer Mitzi Mayfair, actress Carole Landis and comedienne Martha Raye. Carole Landis was one of the top pin-up girls of WWII and few did more to entertain the troops than she did. It is said that after the war ended she felt her life no longer had meaning. Sadly for a variety of reasons she would take her own life in 1948.

  1. I was so sorry to learn about the singer in the middle (Carole Landis). I wish she knew just by this one video clip how many smiles she brought into the world.
    I have a question. I used to watch a video (not on this channel) about some ladies singing in a train. It was a train song much like Chattanooga Choo Choo. I have no idea what the song is called but there's alot of "Chug chug, choo" in the chorus, and at one time they sing "the conductor's a hep cat too. I'd love to hear it again. Any idea? Thanks.
