Hollywood Spies

Hollywood, as we now know from declassified National Archive documents, aided in the mobilization for war and its people contributed as spies, combatants, propagandists, documentary and fund-raisers, entertainers, and morale- boosters. Hundreds of celebrities eagerly answered the “call to arms” and brought their talents and patriotism to the intelligence services, military and war information offices.

In the National Archives we discover that stars as Cary Grant, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Leslie Howard, Josephine Baker, John Ford and many more, were spies for the Allies, and changed the curse of the war. They did amazing things, dangerous things, and their fame was their asset. This untold story is very accurate and relevant still today.
