I was there
"The Army-Navy Screen Magazine" was a bi-weekly series of films produced by the Army, Air Force & Navy shown only to service personnel. One of the regular features were "I Was There," episodes showing first person accounts from front line veterans. Here are three memorable clips from the series: Two veterans of Jimmy Doolittle's B-25 raid on Tokyo discuss the mission, Bombardier & Navy Cross recipient Meyer Leven describes being shot down on the famous mission with Colin Kelly in one of the first offensive B-17 air operations in World War 2, and Combat Cameraman Marine Corps Staff Sargent Norman Hatch went in with the first wave of the landings at Tarawa, "armed with a pistol and hand camera."
The Fighting Lady
The Fighting Lady in Restored Color
"The Fighting Lady" follows the fictional career of an Essex Class aircraft carrier from the Marcus Islands campaign, through Tinian, Truk, the "Mariana's Turkey Shoot" and much more. All of the footage shown in this fascinating composite documentary is real -- shot by combat cameramen on board ship and in the air, showing actual Navy and Marine pilots and crewmen up close and personal. You'll see dramatic action showing Hellcats, Hell Divers, Corsairs on deck and in the air, including exciting dive bombing, anti-aircraft, and gun camera footage and some amazing walkaway crash landings.
Yamamoto Shot Down
See the P-38 Squadron that shot down Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, one of imperial Japan's leading strategists, in an incredible long distance interception in the Pacific. Includes purported P-38 gun camera footage of the Admiral's Betty going down in flames. This mission resulted both a great blow to Japanese morale & the loss of one of their ablest commanders
Axis War News
Axis War News
He 111s, Stalingrad, the Tirpitz & much more
During World War 2, German newsreels were often edited and narrated in another language for distribution to friendly Axis, occupied and neutral countries. In many cases, the German originals have disappeared and all that remains today are these foreign language versions. There's some great footage here and the pictures tell the story!
No Sweat
"No Sweat"
Flight Safety Training with the F-86D Sabre Jet
This film was produced by USAFE (United States Air Force, Europe) and filmed on location in Germany in the 1950s in order to cut down on costly air accidents resulting from pilot error. Seemingly trivial mistakes sometimes led to SNAFUs -- or worse. You'll follow a pilot through what should have been a routine hop, but turns into anything but. This black and white movie has a sort of 1950s film noir detective quality to it that makes it more entertaining than a lot of dry, by the book military training films. Hey, the pilot is just coming off a bender and he has a "Frau" back in Wiesbaden
Gio For Broke
Go for Broke!
Japanese Americans fight for their country in World War 2
An Academy Award nominated feature film, “Go for Broke!” stars Van Johnson along with actual veterans of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The film tells the true story of the 442nd RCT, composed of Nisei soldiers, second-generation Americans born to Japanese-American parents, from training through combat.
XB-70
XB-70A Valkyrie Supersonic Bomber Flight Test Program Overview
The XB-70 supersonic bomber was one of the most beautiful aircraft of all time!This film, produced by North American Aviation, gives a concise overview of the early phases of the supersonic XB-70A bomber aircraft design, construction, development and testing starting in 1964. On 14 October 1965, the Valkyrie broke the Mach 3 barrier. You'll see Phase one & two flight tests and "proof loading" structural tests.
House Search
From the C.I.A. Archives, this is a "hands on" agent training film produced by the O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services) during Word War 2 on the art of hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in locations like homes, apartments, and hotel rooms. The story begins with an American industrialist working in a neutral country, who is working as an O.S.S operative. He has hidden a purloined chemical sample and other info in his apartment, which is soon searched by an enemy agent, who knows a few things, but doesn't know enough to find what he's after.
