Taking A Chance On Love

Thursday, May 13, 1943

With the war in North Africa officially over, eyes turned to Italy. It was the obvious next move for the Allies as they could hop from Tunisia to Sicily and move north from the toe. Meanwhile, Catholic bishops in Germany denounced the Nazi Reich for ransacking Catholic churches and banishing priests in occupied areas and thus “fostering enmity.” Not a word was said about rounding up and slaughtering Jews. On the Home Front, a remarkable film, “Cabin In The Sky,” featured outstanding African-American performers such as Ethel Waters, Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, and Louis Armstrong. And talk about incredible music, try “Taking A Chance on Love.”
