SPECIAL BONUS EXTRA: WHILE SOLDIERS FOUGHT: WAR AND AMERICAN SOCIETY - WINNING THE WAR ON FILM (28 Min., Color)
An analysis and survey of the most powerful American World War II propaganda films: the ''Why We Fight'' series by director Frank Capra and ''Battle of San Pietro'' by director John Huston. An episode of the venerable TV documentary series on the societal effects of America's wars on its people.
Why We Fight is a series of seven documentary films produced by the US Department of War from 1942 to 1945, during World War II. It was originally written for American soldiers to help them understand why the United States was involved in the war, but US President Franklin Roosevelt ordered it to be distributed also for public viewing. Most of the entries were directed by Frank Capra, who was daunted but impressed and challenged by Leni Riefenstahl's propaganda film Triumph of the Will, and he worked in direct response to it. The series faced tough challenges like convincing a noninterventionist nation to get involved in the war and to become an ally of the Soviet Union. In many of the films, Capra and other directors spliced in Axis powers' propaganda footage from up to 20 years earlier and recontextualized to promote the Allies. Why We Fight was primarily edited by William Hornbeck although some parts were re-enacted "under War Department supervision" if no relevant footage was available. The animated segments were produced by Disney, and the animated maps followed a convention of depicting Axis-occupied territory in black.
