Thumbs Up is a 1943 American musical drama film directed by Joseph Santley and starring Brenda Joyce, Richard Fraser and Elsa Lanchester.


For a publicity stunt to boost her career an American nightclub singer volunteers for a stint in a British munitions factory. She is so impressed by the spirit of her fellow workers that she decides to stay on.[1]

Main cast[edit]


The United States Office of War Information strongly approved of the film which they felt showed a more realistic, democratic version of modern Britain than most other Hollywood films of the period.[2]
