The best reason for the movie was to raise money for the war effort, which it handsomely did.

Audience Reviews for Thousands Cheer

A silly romance story built around a star showcase. Typical for the forties. It's okay.

Clumped together hodgepodge whose purpose was to spotlight MGM stars, Judy Garland comes off best.
