Bulldog Drummond on a Blue Monday

Monday, May 24, 1943

Looking back and celebrating survivors of “The Greatest Generation,” it’s easy to forget wartime dissension. The GOP was incensed about taxes as the government called for 45 billions more. Labor unions were on strike over pay and safety, particularly for coal miners. Householders complained about rationing. Mothers bribed and cheated for diapers. Some 10,000 families were without homes as the Mississippi poured over crumbling levees. And over all these issues was concern about the shape of the future world, especially of what the Russians would do. A train derailment in New York seemed a manifestation of the unease. Time to tune out the world for a bit and tune in the adventures of British master spy, Bulldog Drummond, tonight at 9:30 on WGN.
