Hollywood & World War II: The War Years
After Pearl Harbor, Hollywood quickly enlisted in the war effort. Drama, comedy & the gravity of war from “Buck Privates” and “A Yank in the RAF,” through “Flags of Our Fathers,” “Saving Private Ryan,” and “Dunkirk” Hollywood has had a long fascination with World War II.
The program features the movies of the war years, 1940 through 1945. Immediately after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hollywood became a full participant in the war effort. Dozens of stars volunteered for military duty, while others created movies that encouraged patriotism, told the stories of the brave fighting men and women of the military, and provided entertainment to raise millions of dollars for the war effort. This program looks at many of the notable, interesting and more remarkable films that capture different perspectives of World War II.
