Description
A record of the final mission of the B-17 "Flying Fortress" #604, William Wyler's The Memphis Belle follows the plane's crew as they bomb one of Germany's submarine pens. Oscar winner Clark Gable directed and narrated Combat America, a color film hailed by Variety for "the most sustained, exciting and deadly aerial battles yet to come from the cameras of the U.S. armed forces." Directed by five-time Oscar winner Frank Capra, War Comes to America is an unabashedly patriotic film outlining the necessity of the U.S. going to war. Narrated by Oscar winner Walter Huston, Capra's Know Your Ally: Britain was instrumental in garnering support for one of America's key WWII allies. Hollywood maverick and military major John Huston's Oscar-nominated Report from the Aleutians depicts the desolate lives of soldiers stationed in the most remote outpost of the war. Hailed by Langston Hughes as "distinctly and thrillingly worthwhile," Capra's The Negro Soldier is an impressive piece of American history, while Oscar winner Celeste Holm hosts Soldiers in Greasepaint, a tribute to such staunch USO entertainers as Bob Hope, Jack Benny, Marlene Dietrich, and the Rockettes. These 300 minutes of digitally remastered footage—as well as a bonus CD of patriotic selections by leading entertainers of the era (including Glenn Miller's "American Patrol")—are packaged in a collector's tin.
