  • The True Glory

    1945. Great Britain/USA. Directed by Captain Garson Kanin, Carol Reed. Narrated by Robert Harris. Introduction by General Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reed and Kanin were chosen by a British/American committee to create a binational portrait of the liberation of Europe. The resulting work highlighted the remarkable success of the Allied forces on the battlefield—and won an Academy Award. New print made by National Archives and Records Administration. 87 min.

  • Hitler Lives?

    1945. USA. Directed by Don Siegel. Screenplay by Saul Elkins, based on Your Job in Germany by Theodor Geisel. Narrated by Knox Manning. Controversial for its assertion that Germans are essentially untrustworthy and must be constantly monitored, this was first intended as a training tool for occupying troops. The initial version was penned by the future Dr. Seuss (Geisel). New print from Warner Bros. 10 min.
