    • Synopsis
    • The great Katharine Cornell embarks upon a tour with a troupe of actors to perform her signature role of Elizabeth Barrett in "The Barretts of Wimpole Street" for G.I.s fighting in World War II Italy. The U.S.O. and the Army predict failure for her long-hair drama, but the tour goes forward as the itinerary is literally fought for. Love is won and lost, on and off the stage, and sacrifices are made in this true story that rescues a lost piece of LGBTQ history, and remembers a front that must never be forgotten.
