Humanist Explorations: Verna, USO Girl

With Memorial Day just behind us and the anniversary of the Normandy Invasion just ahead, this is a great time for the story of a young woman whose dreams and hopes for her future take place in the last months of the Second World War. Based on a story by Paul Gallico, the screenplay by Albert Innaurato, this film illustrates how life’s choices inform the fragility and evanescence of our days.
