9781199534576: Movie Lot to Beachhead: The Motion Picture Goes to War and Prepares for the Future

Dust jacket notes: "Here's the story in vivid pictures and text...How movieland changed golden slippers for GI boots, make-believe for reality. What it contributed - what it learned - how it is using its new knowledge for postwar plans. Hollywood's contributions to the Allied war effort are many and of high importance, as you can see by glancing at the back of this jacket. Inside, 300 pages of pictures and prose give the details. You see the stars who went into uniform: Clark Gable, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Robert Mongomery, others. You follow Jimmy Stewart from his induction, through Air Corps training, to his flights over Germany. You go behind the cameras to see how war pictures such as God Is My Co-Pilot are filmed. You join the road show of stars - comedians and beauties - who have trekked overseas to entertain our troops: Bob Hope, Joe E. Brown, Paulette Goddard, et al. In the midst of battle you are with the combat cameramen, recording the biggest war in history. You learn about films which have taught the trade of war and been used to fortify war production and morale at home. Finally, you look into the future of the motion picture, with its new and momentous postwar plans. This is an exciting record of a war job well done."
