New It couldn't have been "all movies" in the UK.
Over 1,600,000 American servicemen and women were in Great Britain as the invasion was launched. Numbers dwindled thereafter, but as late as April 30, 1945 there were still over 224,000 airmen, 109,000 communications zone troops, and 100,000 in hospitals or preparing to serve as individual replacements.

It's mourning in America again.
New Stahp.
You asked a question, I answered it.

I will talk slowly, as if to a small child:

We just. didn't. care. about. American. domestic. news. and. events. There. were very. few. ways. of. getting. it. even. if. we. did.

The vast majority of those military personnel were on American bases where they had little to no interaction with The Limeys, other than getting pissed in the local pub.

And then, very shortly afterwards, the vast, vast majority of them fucked off home, as you would expect.
