Touching American propaganda film from WWII
26 November 1998 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

The aim of the movie is to encourage American blacks to identify themselves with the on-going struggle overseas.

It is convincing but fairly dull in comparison to other Frank Capra propaganda films.
