A Boy and His Gun
14 May 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

During the Second World War the animation studios did a lot of informational films. This two-reel combination cartoon and live action from the Disney Studios was meant to show Canadian troops how to care for and use their anti-tank guns. It is enlivened by a short cartoon at the beginning showing Hitler and a bunch of heiling tanks being taken out by some anti-tank troops. Then follows the instructional, live action sections, and the whole thing is ended by a cartoon gag, showing a Private-Snafu-type of soldier in a British helmet going to bed with his anti-tank gun.

You may, of course, find the instructional section rather dry, but the cartoon sections are fairly amusing.
