Classic Hollywood Stars on the USS Alabama

Earlier this month we made the trip down to Mobile, Alabama, to take the Kid to camp, and while we were there we paid a visit to the USS Alabama. As I perused a wall of photos from the ship's memory book, I was delighted to find this one of Ray Milland, Mary Elliott, Frances Faye, and Rosita (aka Rita!) Moreno visiting the sailors of the Alabama in the South Seas.

You can tell that whoever wrote the caption wasn't a big film buff, but it was great to see the photo and think about the stars who entertained our men in uniform during and after the war. Hope you enjoy this classic movie moment as much as I did!
