Contents:

UNIVERSAL NEWSREEL JANUARY 16TH 1947: ENVOYS PROBE INDO-CHINA REBELLION(1947, 1:11)
consists of a quick, sweeping overview of the French Foreign Minister's visit to Angkor Wat, meeting frightened peasants and projecting nervous smiles, in the early days of the post-WWII Viet Minh rebellion.

A DAY IN AMERICA(1968, 28:48)
Consists of what amounts to a Pledge of Allegiance to the Department of Defense (you actually do see students Pledging Allegiance while the Defense Department Seal flashes on-screen). What you're pledged to defend is essentially everything that can be claimed American, multicultural style. Sprinkled liberally throughout are unique glimpses of just about every aspect of life in the U.S. as it existed at the time of filming (1968), while images of men in arms are kept to a carefully-timed-for-emphasis minimum. Americana shots include model rocketry, space program, pseudo-psychedlic nightlife (watch for the hippies with yellow teeth!), professional baseball & rodeo, high school football. Military shots include Marines in basic training, the Coast Guard in Helicopter patrols, Vietnam vets returning to the U.S.. Economic life vignettes display farmers, fisheries, lumberjacks, cowboys, doctors, construction workers (includes film of construction atop the World Trade Center!), movies (shows Barbara Streisand and Gene Kelly on a movie set!), steel, auto, textiles, clerical, computer. Cultural images include Native Americans, clergy & church services. And don't forget the leisure of "free time" and, most of all, the importance of the family!

BRINK OF DISASTER (1972, 28:41)
A film which summons the spirits of a circa 1972 student activist's ancestors, who proceed to beat him up before setting back the clock, returning to haunt him, but also to educate him. The head of the History Department attempts to assist them in this re-education, explaining to the Vietnam War veteran / football player / honor student that he's an unwitting dupe of a communist conspiracy to undermine American society. Amidst footage of the March on the Pentagon and protests at Lafayette Park on the one hand, and film of the Berlin Wall and the Invasion of Hungary on the other, the activist learns "What's Right with America", which is said to be, quite candidly, materialist superiority. "The Commies" haven't duped the shades of the Pioneer farmer who know Ben Franklin, the Sailor who knew Fulton, and the Mechanic who knew Ford (Franklin, Fulton, Ford - one more "F" & he'd be "4F"), and they tell their variously grand & greatly grand son exactly that. They win him over, and he decides he won't let the student rioters into the library to wreak wanton destruction after all - rather, he'll go & beat the hell out of them instead, shoulder-to-shouder with his teacher & disembodied kinfolk.

RED CHINESE BATTLE PLAN (1964, 25:15)
The U.S. Navy sponsored & produced this remarkable survey of the military and political history of the Chinese Communist revolution from 1921 to 1964. The "yellow peril" is here given bombastic propaganda treatment at a time when the U.S. was most immediately concerned with the prosecution of the war raging in China's neighboring country, Vietnam. The film goes some length in establishing a strong link between the two countries, which was accurate at the time though, as history has seen, only to a degree, and a rapidly eroding one at that.
