Overview

This is a story of the way it was in Los Angeles of 1942. The war was on and millions of young men were answering the call to duty. Many more wanted to join up but for their 4-F status (a classification for men not physically fit for service). Which was the case with the main character, Tom Driscoll, a Hollywood stuntman who was kept out of uniform because of a heart murmur. And even though Tom risked his life daily by performing death-defying stunts, Uncle Sam wouldn't allow him to fight for his country. Tom did, however, through a series of hair-raising events on the homefront, serve his country in a way he never expected. 4-F BLUES is a sentimental journey back to the glitter of Hollywood, 1942. It takes you into the studios and into the lives of the stars. It's full of history and full of surprises.
