Get Ready for Tomorrow's Return of Bomb Girls on Reelz with a Classic 1940s Newsreel
03.26.13 by REELZ
The Bomb Girls are coming back to Reelz this Wednesday, with the first two episodes of the new season premiering March 27th at 8p E/ 5p P. In honor of the premiere, and the real women who worked in factories during the second world war, we're taking a look back at life in the 1940s. Today, we have a short video called "Glamour Girls of 1943" that extols the virtues of working women that was produced by the Office of War Information Bureau of Motion Pictures. Some of the ladies featured in the video sure do remind us of some of our favorite Bomb Girls characters. Check it out.
Same War, Different Battles
Is it just us or is there a lady working some patented Betty McRae swagger around the 5:53 mark?
For anyone who missed the award-winning first season of Bomb Girls, it will air before the season two premiere in an all day marathon starting at 11a ET/ 8a PT. A full eight hours at VicMu? We can't wait.
