MOVIE STAR INDUCTION - TYRONE POWER

In the earliest days of America's involvement in World War II, there was no greater induction inducement for younger guys planning to enlist,or waiting to be drafted, than to pick-up a national magazine, or see in a newsreel at the local "Bijou", their favorite actor, Movie Star, or anyone of prominence at the time, joining the military ranks. It was a period of unparalleled "Patriotism", and probably rightfully.

Here a cameraman of the time has captured Tyrone Power getting his induction shots as he joins the Marines. For any number of young men this had to be a great incentive,as well as inspiration, to join-up!
