Program description: Here is an excellent follow up program for those who booked the World War One As Seen Through Hollywood's Lens seminar. This program details the aim of Hollywood in its rally call to produce propaganda films that would persuade the American people to wholeheartedly join the war effort. By pulling together some of Hollywood's top talent (many of whom were already in active service via the armed forces), Hollywood proved to be vitally instrumental in drumming up the force needed to help the allies win the war. Hear the history of how all of this unfolded, and see clips from some of the most famous propaganda films produced in Tinsel Town including Casablanca (1942), Joan of Paris (1942), A Yank on the Burma Road (1942), as well as countless others. We even explore the use of loaded imagery in various other genres including musicals, horror, animation and more! Excellent program for the Memorial Day weekend and the months leading up to it.
