“….A LITTLE SAD AND A LITTLE LONESOME….” I said yesterday that sentiment is needed if a realistic mirror is to be held up to life and that the Mulberry Street musical set on the home front in World War II is properly sentimental. The article on White Christmas has a quotation from Carl Sandburg describing America at that time: “We have learned to be a little sad and a little lonesome, without being sickly about it. This feeling is caught in the song of a thousand juke boxes and the tune whistled in streets and homes, ‘I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.'”
