They called her the Forces Sweetheart. During the Second World War, Vera Lynn was Britain's most popular female entertainer. Her poignant, bittersweet songs captured alike the hearts of those away fighting and those left behind on the Home Front.
During those war years, Vera Lynn also made three wonderful musicals for Columbia Pictures. Rarely seen, these three very special films have been rediscovered in the film archives and are now available to own for the veryfirst time…
