Storyline

American Movie Classics presents the untold story of moviemakers at war during World War II. Enlisting directly from the soundstages of Hollywood, the writers, directors, actors and technicians of the Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit made over three-hundred training films and documentaries with production values rivaling a Hollywood studio. In the hands of these "Hollywood Commandos" motion pictures became a valuable weapon in the fight against tyranny. These film, once thought lost, have gone largely unseen since the war, but now have found a home in this fascinating look at a forgotten chapter in Hollywood history. Includes interviews with unit survivors and clips from an amazing de-classified film that employed a giant miniature of Japan for use in targeting by American bombers. Written by Anonymous
