That Hitler is Not a Nice Guy, Eh?
8 March 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This World War Two Propaganda film from Canada is composed of news clips from the previous decade and a narration by Lorne Greene -- best remembered south of the 49th Parallel as Ben Cartwright on BONANZA -- written by the film's writer-director, Stuart Legg. British propaganda films were about phlegmatism. American propaganda about cooperating to do the job. This Canadian piece seems to be about getting angry enough to get up and take a whack at those lying b*****ds in Germany and Japan, because that's what the other good people are doing.

Given the quieter voices of other national propagandas and the modern multi-cultural diversity, it seems over the top. I think the tone was to convince Canadians that it was necessary for them to work for the war effort, despite their small population. What difference could Canadian participation make? Or maybe that's the way things actually were. I think it was both.
