An Odd Propaganda Piece
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poetry by Rudyard Kipling, John Milton, and William Blake, and excerpts from speeches by Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill, all read by Laurence Olivier, illuminate documentary footage of England during its defense against the Nazi blitz in World War II. This short film serves as both propaganda and as a rallying cry to the British people.

What can one say about this? It is a noted thespian speaking classic poetry over scenes of England. How does one critique such a thing? While it certainly has its historical value, I am not entirely clear if it is impressive or not. I mean, the audio could have been recorded 100 times until it was done right...
