Blonde Bombshells of 1943

Blonde Bombshells of 1943T888050946
Blonde Bombshells of 1943 looks back at the early years of the Blonde Bombshells, the most glamorous swing band in the land. Elizabeth, now a grandmother, but then a naïve schoolgirl in Leeds, remembers it as the most exciting and frightening time in her life. Never before had she met an upper-class deb, a nun and a man wearing a frock, all in the same room and all while the bombs were falling. Music may be the food of lots of things as well. Memories, regrets, catastrophes, laughter and narrow escapes. This especially so when it's the music of Fats Waller, the Andrew Sisters and Glenn Miller - not forgetting Flanagan and Allen and George Formby. What Elizabeth learns from her memories is simple; inside every respectable middle-aged woman, there's a Blonde Bombshell screaming to get out.
