The Joseph Stilwell Story NEW
This is the life of "Vinegar Joe" Stilwell, one of the most brilliant, hardest driving, and at times most difficult to manage and work with Allied commanders in World War 2. Criticized for the high casualties often sustained by troops under his command and his battles with Chiang Kai-Shek, Claire Chennault and British commanders, there is no question he got results under extremely difficult circumstances, using meager resources.
Why We're Here Fighting in Burma & India
This film report was delivered by General Daniel Sultan, who succeeded General Stilwell as Allied commander of Burma/India operations. When surveyed, 50% of US forces had responded that they didn't know why they were in seemingly obscure South East Asia, "fighting to save the Chinese and the British Empire," instead of in Europe or the highly publicized island campaigns in the South Pacific. In response, the General shows the vital strategic importance of keeping China in the war and the essential role (and sacrifices) of British and Chinese forces, all done through engaging film clips and maps.
B-25s: Winged Artillery
Nine 75mm cannon firing B-25Gs of the 48th Bomb Squadron, 7AAF, based on Apamama in the Gilbert Islands, conduct a hair raising tree top level strike on the Japanese air base on Mille. Also features amazingly well preserved and very rare color footage of daily life of air crew and ground personnel stationed on the islands. As a bonus, you'll watch Sea Bees using heavy equipment to transform these hard won tropical atolls into fully functioning air bases and ground crews maintaining the Mitchell's massive canons.
Medium Bombardment & Attack with the B-25 Mitchell
This unique film was made to indoctrinate B-25 & A-20 medium bomber squadrons transitioning from Europe to the Pacific, with a focus on the North American B-25. These groups were primarily tasked with ground and anti ship attacks, inflicting huge losses on Japanese forces, far out of proportion to their numbers. Great footage of extremely low level actions! Covers operating in the tropics, squadron staff duties, planning missions, converting B-25s for ground attack and tactics for land & sea attacks "on the deck.
9th AF 362nd Fighter Group P-47s in Action
I produced this original documentary from dark, faded silent gun camera film footage from the Spring of 1945 over Germany. I've been able to restore it using digital technology. I've added additional info about the pilots and planes and added real P-47 Thunderbolt sound effects. Featured pilots from the 362nd FG are Alvin Lieberman, Robert A Jackson and the legendary Wilfred Crutchfield, flying his P-47 "Kentucky Colonel," attacking a wide variety of ground targets in March, 1945.
25 hour Day - F-105s in Vietnam
This film offers a unique look inside F-105 "Thunderchief" ("The Thud!") fighter-bomber operations when the air campaign against North Vietnamese supply lines was ramping up into to high gear. Secretary of State Robert McNamara gives the broad outline of the Thud's primary mission in a series of strategic briefings: to strangle the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the strategic supply line from North to South Vietnam, through Cambodia and Laos, that was showing a quantum increase in activity and importance.
The Fighting 51st: F-86 Sabre Jets in Korea
This revealing documentary was produced by the US Air Force during the Korean War. You'll see members of all sections of the 'Fighting 51st" Fighter Group and their F-86 Sabres in action. The film covers a typical mission, from planning through touchdown. One of the highlights of the film is an address by Francis "Gabby" Gabreski, legendary 56th Fighter Group ace in World War 2 and CO of the 51st in Korea.
Surviving copies of this rousing Academy Award winning Irving Berlin musical are dark with color shifts, so I did what I could restore it to its original Technicolor glory using digital technology. A great example of the kind of the buoyant Hollywood musical shown at home & to troops around the World in the midst of World War 2. Directed by Michael Curtiz, it features an all star musical cast headed by George Murphy, aided by Ronald Reagan, with a long list of memorable tunes that will have you singing them after it's over.
