Everyone went to the movies during WWII and generally believed what they saw at the local theater. U.S. President Roosevelt believed the film industry could be helpful in influencing Americans, why we must fight! As part of the war effort, two Hollywood film directors emerged as the best:
John Ford (four Academy Awards), "Stagecoach,” "The Grapes of Wrath,” and "How Green Was My Valley,” were among his films.
Frank Capra (three Academy Awards), "It’s A Wonderful Life,” "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington,” and "It Happened One Night,” to name a few.
Ford joined the navy and concentrated on the Pacific Way and was wounded in 1942 at Midway Island, but continued filming the assault. Capra, recruited by the U.S. Army, combined Germany’s propaganda footage with front-line action to show Americans "Why We Fight!” This DVD collection is the first to bring together the WWII work of these two award-winning filmmakers. 3-DVD set. Approx. 10 hours.
- 84 WWII Newsreels shown at local theaters during the 1940s.
