Most entertainment became geared towards the war effort – propaganda if you like. News was about the war effort; posters were about doing your part; organized sports continued – as it was considered good for the home front morale, but auto racing was banned due to gasoline rationing; movies continued to be a big part of everyday life – and many war films were made.
In Britain, entertainment was popular and necessary. Despite the continuous bombing people went to the cinemas, theatres, music halls and dances. It took their mind off the war and brightened up their lives, therefore it increased morale during the darkest days of the War.
