The popularity of Hollywood cinema rests in large part on the “star system”. Adored and adulated, stars have a great hold on movie audiences. They were thus frequently enlisted for propaganda campaigns orchestrated by various governments during the war. In this news report, the famous actress Shirley Temple visits the St. Hubert military base to promote the Canadian government’s Victory Bonds.
