"Some time during the day drink at least one pint of milk. And it's a good idea to have a couple of tomatoes in your lunch..."
Wartime short starring Robert Stack and other actors under contract to Universal, such as Broderick Crawford, Dick Foran, Andy Devine, Ralph Morgan, Anne Gwynne, Don Porter, and Lon Chaney, Jr. Each actor's character shares the name of the actor, but they aren't really playing themselves. Unless Ralph Morgan had a medical license that I'm unaware of. The gist of the short is to remind civilians working in factories that it's their duty to their country to stay in shape and take care of themselves so they can do their part in the war effort. Of interest today to classic film fans and WW2 buffs, I suppose. I always like seeing these types of things because of the curiosity factor and because they have a neat 'window into the past' appeal. For example, I had no idea the government ran cooking schools during the war to teach wives how to properly cook for their husbands. I need to see if that's still a thing today.
