Actor James Cagney christening the B-17 Yankee Doodle Dandy at Framlingham Airfield England, 1944.
Cagney toured US military bases in the UK on the USO tour. He refused to give interviews to the British press, preferring to concentrate on rehearsals and performances. He gave several performances a day for the Army Signal Corps of The American Cavalcade of Dance, which consisted of a history of American dance, from the earliest days to Fred Astaire, and culminated with dances from Yankee Doodle Dandy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cagney
