Six Color Films

* Man and the FBN: The US Navy deploys its first nuclear Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarines (

USS George Washington (SSBN-598) –the lead ship of US Navy's first class of Fleet Ballistic Missile submarines - was the first operational nuclear-powered strategic multi-missile under water launch capable submarine in the World. With 16 Polaris A-1 missiles which had a range of 1,000 miles it entered service in December 1959 and conducted the first active patrol November 1960-January 1961. This fascinating film shows the story in graphic detail of the development, construction, testing and deployment of both the revolutionary new subs and their missiles.

* Destroyermen (1960s,Color,15:00) This is a rare up close and personal look at daily life aboard US Navy destroyers on duty with the 6th fleet in the Mediterranean in the early 1960s. Featured ships include USS Bordelon (DD-881), USS Strong (DD-758), and USS Gearing (DD-710). You'll see a wide range of activities including a submarine alert, gunfire drill including shots inside the 5. gun turret, engine room operations, refueling at sea, and liberty ashore in Athens, Greece. A memorable color snap snapshot of a bygone era.

* Tracking the Threat: Anti Submarine Warfare at the Height of the Cold War This is an amazing time capsule that could have come right out of the pages of Tom Clancey's classic thriller, “The Hunt for the Red October.” In this memorable recreation, a US Navy Carrier Task Force detects and tracks a Soviet sub in the North Atlantic. You'll see all aspects of the operation from the high tech Tactical Command Centers aboard the Carrier USS America and Destroyer USS Spruance (DDG-111), to P-3 Orion turbo props out of Keflavik Iceland and carrier launched S-3 Vikings dropping and monitoring sonobuoy fields, to Destroyers deploying towed arrays

* Laser Weapons for the Fleet The Vietnam War posed a new challenge for American attack aircraft: how to deliver payloads with great precision against hotly defended targets like bridges in North Vietnam without exposing planes & crews to withering AAA fire during traditional low altitude dive bombing runs. The answer was a new generation of “smart” weapons systems employing laser beams, TV transmission or a combination of both. This report focus on the development, evolution and deployment of laser based systems by both Navy Air and Marine Corps ground units. The film covers the basics of applied laser technology and the evolution and deployment of laser weapons systems from shoulder mounted laser designators to advanced systems like those on A-6Es Intruder bombers

* Sea Mine Warfare (1968,26:00,Color) Sea mines are one of the oldest naval weapons system still in use for very good reasons: they're relatively cheap, easy to deploy and perform a a wide variety of important functions including blockading harbors, destroying ships at sea, blocking sea lanes and psychological warfare. This comprehensive film gives a short history of the development of both sea mine technology and the mine sweepers used to detect and destroy them from the mid nineteenth century, through World War 1 and 2, with a detailed case study of their role in delaying the the landings at Wonsan in the Korean war, plus more modern deployments. You'll learn about the various kinds of mines including contact, pressure sensitive, acoustic and more and their tactical and strategic uses. You'll also see the various counter measure used by mine sweepers to detect &n explode mines, featuring USN sweepers Pinnacle (MSO 462), Sagacity (MSO 469) Agile (MSO 421) and Ozark (MCS 2) in action. This is an inside view of a widely used but little known technology you wont see anywhere else.

* The U.S. Navy from Vietnam to the 21st Century This is an excellent broad stroke report on the evolution of U.S. Navy strategic doctrine and deployment from the Vietnam war through Operation Desert Storm. You'll see how the Navy adapted to the unique challenges presented by the Vietnam War, followed by post war down sizing and then dramatic growth under the Reagan administration's “600 Ship Navy.” Of particular interest are the evolving role of aircraft carriers, the rebirth of the battleship and the introduction of a new generation of smart weapons like the Tomahawk cruise missile, used extensively in the Gulf War

* Destroyers Greyhounds of the Seas. Narrated by the legendary actor & ex Marine Corps DI, Jack Webb, This fascinating documentary covers the history of “Tin Cans” from the US Navy's first “Torpedo Boat Destroyer,” the U.S.S Bainbridge (DD-1) in1903 to modern guided missile and ASW Destroyers operating in Hunter/Killer groups in concert with Aircraft Carriers.

* Floating Fortress This is a unique look inside an Iowa class battleship, the U.S.S. Wisconsin, during the Korean Conflict. Essentially unchanged from World War 2, the Wisconsin provided fire support for amphibious landings and inland battles, hurling 16 inch shells 20 miles. The Wisconsin was a floating city at work. You'll see all aspects of daily operations including inside the gun turret in action, on the bridge,and much more

* Battle Ship This film was produced as part of the ceremony commemorating the recommissioning of The Battle Ship Missouri in 1986.

* The Attack Carrier. From U.S.S Langely CV1 to U.S.S. Enterprise CVAN 65 This is a concise history of US Navy Attack Carriers from the US Langley in 1921 (CV-1) through the deployment of the first Nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the USS:Enterprise (CVN 65).

Two feature length films on one DVD
*News From the Front in North Africa 1942
Shot In Technicolor by US Army, Navy and O.S.S. cameraman in Morrocco, Algeria and Tunisia, November-December 1942. A new Archival release with color correction. Hands down some of the best color footage we have seen from World War 2.
T his was tough "on the job training" for the brand new American Army and Air Corps.
Highlights include: Very low level Luftwaffe bombing and staffing runs against shipping, towns, troops and and airfields by Ju 88s. He 111's and very rare shots of ME 210s flying right overhead. The Battle of Taboura unfolds in broad valley in a panoramic tableau right out of a scene from "Patton" -- and you get an armchair view of the action. German Tiger tanks and infantry advance in the open and are turned back by withering Allied gun fire. See a low altitude dogfight between P-38s. Spitfires and Messerschmidts, as photographed from the ground. Footage of tactical combat maneuvering like this between fighters is extremely rare!* A treasure trove of early war color footage of Allied forces, including Grant medium and Stewart light takes, half tracks, jeeps, and US and British soldiers in combat kit both at rest and in fierce fighting.
*Tunisian Victory
An American-
British feature length co production in very good black and white film, reminiscent of the Academy Award Winner, "The True Glory." This is the climactic final chapter in the defeat of Rommel's Africa Korps told in an epic, wide ranging presentation.
American, British, and French forces strike from the West in Operation Torch, landing in Morocco and Algeria, the first major amphibious strike of World War 2. British and Commonwealth forces continue their drive from Egypt, through the Mareth Line in Southern Tunisia. And "action packed" is an understatement! You'll see all aspects of Allied air, sea, parachute and ground operations from beach landings through the final mass surrender of the Africa Korps, including a mountain of dramatic combat footage ranging across the North African front. There's a wide variety of Allied and Axis tanks and armored vehicles featured too, along with many aircraft like the A-20, B-25,B-17, B-24, Spitfire,Hurricane, Beaufighter, P-38, P-39, P-40 and more in action. The film has plenty of animated strategic and tactical maps that make this complex operation easy to grasp.

The US Army Air Force in World War 2: Behind the Scenes NEW!

Four exciting films with two hours of digitally restored sound & video in excellent condition!

* Photographic Intelligence for Bombardment Aviation Top secret & never shown to the public, this picture is an amazing time capsule from World War 2. Starring screen legend Alan Ladd (Shane, This Gun for Hire) it's like a real life detective story, seen only by Air Intelligence trainees. “Smitty,” an American Captain in photo analysis stationed in a misty Scottish castle, becomes obsessed with a photo recon picture taken over Hamburg, Germany, that has anomalies he just can't explain. The story of how he solves this riddle using persistence, insight and World War 2 High Tech (including “Stereo Vision”) is a fascinating tale.

* Ditch and Live in a B-17 Produced for the eyes of Allied aircrews only. Ditching was a fact of life for stricken aircraft, from the frozen white tops of the North Sea to the Shark infested waters of the South Pacific. "Lt. Reynolds.” played by veteran actor Arthur Kennedy (Lawrence of Arabia), is copilot on a B-17 that ditches at sea. He's survives by pure luck, but the rest of the crew is lost due to a lack of preparation. When he gets his own ship, Reynolds vows that his crew will thoroughly trained in B-17 ditching.

* Learn & Live: Pilot Heaven Pilot deaths during training were all too frequent in World War 2, a grim fact that was kept from the public, but was a matter of grave concern to the Army Air Corps. Shown only to pilots, this wonderful film is a unique combination of an entertaining, sometimes surreal storyline, with practical nuts and bolts safety training.

* Bonus: Carl Sandburg's “Bomber” This dramatic film was produced and shown to defense plant workers, lauding and encouraging their important work. Three time Pulitzer Prize winning poet & biographer Carl Sandburg wrote the script for this stirring tribute to a marvelous aircraft, the B-26 medium bomber, and to the men & women who built them in the Martin's Marietta Georgia plant.

Air Reconnaissance, Combat Counter- Intelligence, Camouflage & Espionage in World War 2
NEW!

Six films plus a special bonus feature!

Air Reconnaissance and Observation: Roles, Capabilities and Limitations Airborne intelligence gathering was an essential aid to land and sea combat operations in World War 2 This film was produced by the Army Signal Corps as an introduction for Airborne Observers, including visual reporting, photographic and artillery spotting. Their activities are shown in detail. Skills that had to be developed included navigation, map orientation, radio communications, target identification, photography and gunnery.

Combat Counter-Intelligence Narrated by Hollywood legend Lloyd BridgesThis film opens with a 1940s version of “Spygate.” A scout surreptitiously films from the stands a quarterback's little “tells” that give away the play he is about to run. The scout's team, who is an underdog, uses this intelligence to win their next game against him. The lesson for World War 2 Servicemen: “We must avoid “giveaways!'” The film then segues to a series of engrossing dramatized examples of US infantrymen in both World Wars doing just that.

Camouflage (This film is a treasure. It's one of the best examples of the theory and practice of the art of camouflaging military targets from air observation & attack that you'll find anywhere, presented in a highly entertaining Disney style full color animation supplemented by live action film. Hosted by “Yehudi the Chameleon,” the action is centered around a P-39 Airacobra base in the Pacific and is chocked full of useful information & “how-tos.”

Private SNAFU: Spies! If bumbling Private SNAFU sounds like Bugs Bunny in this entertaining short, it's because it's the legendary voice of Mel Blanc, who did Bugs and many other cartoon characters. The inept Private SNAFU appeared in a series of cartoons showing G.I.s what NOT to do in a variety of situations – in this case, keeping military secrets.

Sucker Bait “Loose lips sick ships,” was a warning seen everywhere during World War 2 in America. In this highly dramatic film, starring Richard Carlson with Donna Reed, Barry Nelson and Esther Williams, unfortunately that comes true. The framework of the film is a lecture to a freshman class for spies in Germany who will soon be sent to the USA. As the cynical, sardonic instructor says, “Here is an incident to illustrate how our enemies talk, think and are criminally careless.” The mission in the case study is to discover convoy sailing times & routes so U-Boats can sink them.

Don't Talk! ) his film was part of MGMs “Crime Does Not Pay'” series showing FBI agents at work. In this case, the G-Men are called in to investigate an explosion at an important defense plant. You'll see them use then state of the art photographic, forensic and chemical analysis to hunt down the perpetrators, in this case a German espionage ring centered around intelligence gathered by Beulah, a waitress in “The Elite Cafe,” where plant workers congregate.

Special Bonus Feature

The Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit (1944,B&W, 21:00) One of the most common questions I've been asked about the World War 2 aviation training films like the ones on this DVD is ”Who made these?” The answer is the subject this fascinating report, “The Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit.” A massive Hollywood studio in Culver City California was turned over solely for producing these training and information films, staffed by experienced men & women enlisted into the Army from all the trades necessary to produce a top flight motion picture. You'll see writers, actors directors, editors, set designers, props, sound technicians, carpenters, sculptors, wardrobe designers & tailors, cartoon animators, special effects wizards, air & ground cinematographers, a motor pool for on location shooting trips, miniature model production, a full orchestra and more, going about their highly specialized tasks.

School For Danger (Aka "Now It Can Be Told") Restored Audio & Video. This is one the most exciting World War 2 espionage films you'll see -- and it's based on actual events. What makes it unique is that virtually all of the characters play themselves performing the roles they executed during World War 2 -- from British secret agents to French Resistance fighters to special mission RAF pilots and operational commanders. Produced by the RAF, this remarkable film on British S.O.E.(Special Operations Executive) wartime espionage operations, including sabotage and intelligence gathering, in occupied France was shot on location after the Liberation.

Denmark Fights for Freedom (10:00, B&W,1944) Restored Audio & Video. What if an entire nation stayed home & refused to show up at work to fight an enemy occupation? You'll see that & much more in this dramatic documentary film, surreptitiously shot during the German occupation of Denmark. It's an inspirational story of how an entire nation pulled together to fight oppression, through acts of sabotage and mass demonstrations. Inspirational!

The Battle for Paris (12:00, B&W,1944) Restored Audio & Video. As the Allies closed the ring on Paris in the Summer of 1944, most of German occupation forces left the city to meet them. The French Resistance leaped into action to take the city, using a combination of smuggled weapons, hunting rifles and captured enemy equipment.

O.S.S. School for Spies in World War 2 - How to be a Secret Agent - Four films

John Ford's "Undercover: How to Operate Behind Enemy Lines" ( From the C.I.A. Archives) It's not everyday we discover a virtually unknown feature film by an Oscar Winning director, let alone one that contains his only speaking role in a talking picture. Hollywood legend John Ford directed this training film during World War 2 on the art of espionage for the O.S.S (Office of Strategic Services, forerunner of the C.I.A) and plays a cameo role as a secret intelligence officer. This is the first film ever made on how to be a spy in enemy territory produced by a secret intelligence service to train their agents.

House Search From the C.I.A. Archives. Another "hands on" agent training film produced by the O.S.S. during Word War 2 on the art of hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in locations like homes, apartments, and hotel rooms.

Body Search From the C.I.A. Archives. In this O.S.S training film, a courier is caught. arrested and thoroughly searched by enemy experts -- and we mean "thoroughly."

The Case of the Tremendous Trifle - Bonus Feature! This fascinating film shows how various intelligence sources, including spies, interrogations of refugees & POWs, aerial reconnaissance and seemingly innocuous periodicals like corporate parts catalogs were tied together and used in the strategic planning and execution of one of the epic missions of World War 2, the bombing of the ball bearing plants at Schweinfurt, Germany.

Fury in the Pacific - The Road Back to the Philippines

Scene by scene digital image restoration! NEW!

* Army Air Forces Pacific AAF C-in-C General H.H. “Hap” introduces this sweeping summary of Army Air Force operations in the Pacific Theater from the attack on Pearl Harbor through the dropping of the atomic bomb. From the Aleutians to the jungles of Burma to hard fought Pacific atolls, you'll see a wide variety of aircraft in action, including P-47 Thunderbolts, B-17s, B-24s and majestic B-29s.

* Fury in the Pacific – The 1st Marine Division takes Peleliu Nine combat cameramen fell filming dramatic, intense fighting shown here. The islands of Peliliu and Angaur in the Palaus (6 miles apart) were considered stepping stones toward retaking the Philippines. The prize was the Japanese airbase on Peliliu. First Marine Division (1st, 5th & 7th Regiments, 9th Artillery) carried out the initial assault and bore the brunt of the fighting, to be joined later by elements of 81st Infantry ferried over from Angaur. Some of the fiercest fighting seen anywhere in World War 2.

* Action at Angaur: The 81st “Wildcat” Division's Baptism of Fire. The film follows the men of the rookie The 81st Infantry Division from R&R on Waikiki to a training landing on Guadalcanal to the beaches & jungles of Angaur. The 3 sq. mile island was needed to secure the flank of the Peleliu operation and to deny the Japanese strategically important phosphate mines. Detailed maps show the progress of the battle. As on Peleliu, beach landings were followed by intense fighting inland against heavily fortified, veteran Japanese troops surrounded by mines & booby traps.

* Appointment in Tokyo: MacArthur Returns to the Philippines This feature length film spans the time from the fall of the Philippine & the island fortress of Corregidor in May 1942 to General MacArthur's return to the islands in October 1944, with a primary focus on the battles to retake the Philippines. Copious combat footage of air, land and sea operations are supplemented by detailed maps that put it all in context. Just a few of many highlights include landings on Leyte, the air & sea Battle of Leyte Gulf, landings on Luzon and intense street fighting in Manila.

"Let There Be Light" was commissioned by the United States Army Signal Corps at the end of World War 2. There are no actors in this true life documentary. For the first time on film, Huston explored the diagnosis and treatment of what used to be called "battle fatigue" or "shell shock" among returning servicemen. This condition is now know as PTSD - post traumatic stress disorder. Public showing of "Let There Be Light" was suppressed soon after completion and it wasn't released for 30 years because of a feared negative effect on recruiting and public morale. But it's a story that must be told because it's still highly relevant to our times.

*The Stilwell Road & the CBI Narrated by Ronald Reagan This is a very detailed strategic and tactical account of the entire campaign in the CBI, from the Chinese construction of the Burma Road in 1939 through the Japanese invasion of Burma, Allied counterattacks, Japanese counterattacks and the opening of the new Stilwell road to China in 1945.
* Why We're Here in the CBI (1945, 33:00, B&W) This filmed report was delivered by General Daniel Sultan, who succeeded General Stilwell as commander of Burma/India operations. When surveyed, 50% of US forces responded that they didn't know why they were in seemingly obscure South East Asia, "fighting to save the Chinese and the British Empire," instead of Europe or the highly publicized island campaigns in the South Pacific. In response, the General shows the vital strategic importance of keeping China in the war and the essential role (and sacrifices) of British and Chines forces
* The Joseph W Stilwell Story This is the life of "Viniger Joe" Stilwell, one of the most brilliant, hardest driving, and at times most difficult to manage and work with Allied commanders in World War 2
* Traffic Control in CBI Gives a very rare and unique behind the scenes look at transport & supply routing in one of the most logistically challenging theaters in World War 2. Millions of tons of supplies had to be funneled through the busy port of Calcutta, loaded on trucks that were transported to the rail head at Ledo, to front line troops fighting the Japanese, and eventually to China via the Stilwell Road.

Resisting Interrogation for Allied Airmen in World War 2

Enemy Interrogation of Prisoners - RAF
1941
This film was developed early in World War 2 to show RAF aircrew what would happen if they were shot down & captured, their orders and duties, and consequences if they let slip even the most innocent sounding facts. The film is based on information supplied by escaped RAF prisoners and via British Intelligence. In this dramatization the four man crew of an RAF Hudson medium bomber fall into enemy hands and are interrogated by Luftwaffe intelligence officers
Resisting Enemy Interrogation - USAAF 1944
Produced in 1944 to prepare US airmen if they were shot down & captured, the film reflects the more hardline interrogation techniques used by the Germans as the War progressed. The crew of a "'B-99" bomber is captured in Northern Italy and taken to a Luftwaffe interrogation center. where they're put in hot boxes, given bogus "red cross" forms to fill out, exposed to fake executions, put in cells with informers, and threatened with harsh punishment. But, as in the RAF film, despite being told that they should only give their name rank and serial number, they often give important information away in casual conversations. Made in 1940's "Casablanca" like Hollywood style, the film features an all star cast including Academy Award Winner Loyd Nolan, Craig Stevens, Don Porter, James Seay and Arthur Kennedy, along with several familiar German and Austrian actors who fled Naziism.Carl Esmond gives a memorable performance as the crafty and debonaire camp commandant, "Major von Behn.".

Evasion: Evading Capture for Downed American Airmen (1950-B&W-92-minutes)
NEW!
As the Cold War heated up in the late 1940s, the prospect of being shot down on a photo reconnaissance mission over Eastern Europe (or even in a hot war) became very real. The US Air Force put together this dramatic feature length training film, shot in Hollywood "film noire" espionage adventure style, to teach downed airmen how to make their way home out of hostile territory.
All the capture evasion skills learned during World War 2 are put to good use, along with lessons learned by the CIA on how to operate in Eastern Europe.A B-29 is shot down far behind enemy lines. The crew is separated during bail out into small groups. What follows are a series of lessons on what to do -- and not to do - to evade capture and make it back to friendly territory

The Western Allies face-off against the Russians in Berlin -- 1948
A dramatic full length feature film shot on location in postwar Germany starring Montgomery Clift. In June 1948 in one of the first confrontations in the Cold War, the Soviets cut land supply routes to the Allied sectors of West Berlin, which was deep in the Russian controlled Eastern Zone in occupied Germany. In a test of wills, the Soviets thought they could starve the Allies out of the city. In response the Western Powers organized the massive Berlin airlift to carry supplies through narrow air corridors. It's an inspiring, well written, powerfully photographed window on the past that will engage you from beginning to end!
