Netflix has So Proudly We Hail on DVD. We have seen grade B movies about Bataan and Corregidor. So Proudly We Hail is more of the same done on a big budget scale. There have been a few hints in the news lately that the American public is not taking the war as seriously as they might. This movie is part of a campaign to adjust that attitude by reminding the public of the terrible defeats their country suffered just a year and a half ago and asking them to get involved both spiritually and physically (by donating blood).
This movie is probably the only time Veronica Lake was cast as a suicide bomber. Mrs. Homer was impressed that Claudette Colberts character was able, no matter the hardships faced during the fight for Bataan and after the evacuation to Corregidor, to keep her makeup fresh and eyebrows perfectly plucked.

Claudette Colbert what a hottie for her time... why are not most American women like her today ?
