This chapter examines Hollywood war films about the U.S. home front, particularly those that defied conventions and presented a version of American life at odds with the official depiction promulgated by most films. These so-called B movies were low-budget, quickly made, and usually action-oriented. They are usually designed to film the second half of a double bill by the major studios. Examples of these films include The Doughgirls, Standing Room Only, and Johnny Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
