A previous poster on July 9, 2004 states how she is disgusted that the pledge as recited by the school children in this film omits the line "under God." Please allow me to clarify. This film was made in 1945, and the phrase "under God" was not inserted into the pledge until the mid 1950s under the Eisenhower administration. This was done so as an anti-communist move. It was NOT originally part of the pledge. The producers of this film were by no means trying to be politically correct by not using it, nor was it ever edited out. The phrase simply did not exist in the pledge in 1945. Having been raised Catholic, I too noticed it right away the first time I saw this film, but a little research on my part quickly put that issue to rest.
And, like her, I also notice the grayed out bar at the bottom of the screen during the main title. Looks like something that was digitally superimposed over the film. (The same gray bar also appears at the end of the theatrical trailer.) I assume it's there to cover up a piece of the copyright, but what part and why? Who knows.
