REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR
That was the war cry. The United States entered World War II with a bang after the treacherous, unprovoked attack that quiet Sunday morning. Our presentation shows, through contemporary newsreels, how the news of what happened was controlled in its release to the public. Suprisingly, there is very little duplication of footage.
First, a Universal Newsreel released right after the attack, emphasied civilian losses. It also includes President Roosevelt's famous Day of Infamy speech.
The second newsreel, released several months later, reveals the aftermath of the attack on the military.
Then on December 8, 1942, exactly one year and a day later, Fox Movietone News was finally allowed to release their full coverage.of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
1943 saw the release of John Ford's production of DECEMBER 7th. It was the War Department's record of what happened on that "that day of infamy".
Also included is a War Bond production, the chilling THIS COULD BE AMERICA. It supposes - what if the fighting was here instead of Japan?
