Film opens with singer on stage singing that he is a "double-duty dollar." He is backed by showgirls costumed as silver dollars. He explains that American dollars are now purchasing guns ammunition, planes, and tanks, to win the war. He alludes to how dollars will be used to fund the peace, after the war. An illustration shows schools, homes, and similar postwar investments in the country's infrastructure. Another shows futuristic cars, helicopter, and television sets. Scenes of pre-war highways filled with moving automobiles. Men playing golf. Gun club members in an outdoor shooting competition. A factory parking lot filled with automobiles and workers leaving the building at end of shift. (Message is that dollars no longer spent on war will revive private sector industry, again.) Film ends with appeal to "Buy an EXTRA War Bond TODAY!"
