Vic Mizzy, Mary Small and other entertainers comfort a soldier injured on the battlefield in WWII. When we were putting this documentary together we had the chance to speak with Joe Frankin who gave me this quote: Eddie Cantor used to say you know, you go to a grocery store you gotta pay for the milk, you go to a meat market you gotta pay for the liver, but entertainers, they don’t get paid, they get asked all the time to do benefits…and anybody who called Eddie Cantor or Mary Small for a benefit… they were there!
