Aerographers Mates were the U.S. Navy's Weathermen. Weather monitoring and forecasting played a pivotal role in all Naval operations. Battles could be won or lost depending on accurate forecasting.

Hollywood Goes to War
The Army Air Forces 1st Motion Picture Unit
One of the most common questions I'm asked about the World War 2 aviation training films l show 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 for producing 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 & much more!
Enemy Interrogation of Prisoners (RAF - 1941)
This film was developed to show World War 2 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. Despite knowing that they are only supposed to reveal their name rank and service number, they gradually reveal important facts about their aircraft, airfield, squadron, missions and more.
Sucker Bait
German Spies in the U.S.A.!
“Loose lips sink ships,” was a warning seen everywhere during World War 2 in America. In this highly dramatic training 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.”
Evasion
Evading Capture for downed U.S. Airmen
As the Cold War heated up in the late 1940s, the prospect of being shot down on a reconnaissance mission over Eastern Europe became real. The US Air Force put together this dramatic 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
Gung Ho!
The Story of Carlson's Makin Island Raiders
This classic Hollywood war movie is based on the true-life World War II Makin Island raid by Lieutenant Colonel Evans Carlson's 2nd Marine Raider Battalion (17--18 August 1942). It was an attack on Japanese forces on Makin (now known as Butaritari) in the Pacific Oceans. The mission was to destroy Japanese installations, take prisoners, gather intelligence on the Gilbert Islands and divert Japanese attention from Allied landings on Guadalcanal and Tulagi.
