I've noticed, as I've dived deeper and deeper into recreating the various service uniforms for social dances, that in the old films they almost always show enlisted men at dances and virtually never officers. I was curious as to why. Is it: 1. Just sheer numbers- any social venue was likely to be inundated with young enlisted men, and officers would've just been drowned out? 2. Officers were forbidden from fraternizing with and/or attending the same venues as enlisted men? 3. The films were trying to have mass appeal and as officers were viewed as the elite(ist) few, wanted to show men to whom the audience could relate/with whom they could identify? 4. Another reason I'm missing? I was much more interested in the officer uniforms for the Army, but I'd slightly rethink it if there's some hard-stop reason why it wouldn't be accurate. Navy though is A-OK with the cracker jack!
