GIANT KILLERS (1944, COLOR, 29:53)
EarthStation1.com is proud that the subject of this film is Elco, a concern who made their home in our hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey, who made nearly 400 PT Boats during World War II. Bayonne still proudly displays the crane used to launch all these boats in a park adjacent to Route 440 on the Jersey City border, though the 21 buildings that made up the Newark Bay Elco facility have since been redeveloped as condominiums. Their boats were the largest PT boats manufactured and they served all over the world, one under the command of a young Navy lieutenant named John F. Kennedy, future president of the United States. Their construction was a model for others to aspire to, as was their plant and their labor force. This films sails us through the manufacture of these fine machines, proudly shows off its plant and gratefully celebrates its workers.
INSIDE FIGHTING CHINA (1942, 18:54)
Even now, some 3 generations later, many history books continue to wrongly insist that it was the long-suffering Soviet Union who suffered the most amount of casualties during World War II. The fact is, China suffered far, far more in casualties, and fought for a far, far longer period of time on at least the same savage scale. This film intended to tell these facts as they had so far developed to a 1942 audience in order to get them to understand China's importance and contribution to the overall war effort.
