Description:

After scrutinizing hundreds of screenplays, Robert Fyne has written an in-depth study of World War II films, analyzing the different storylines, points of view, and contemporary events. In Long Ago and Far Away: Hollywood and the Second World War, Fyne examines WWII films from 1941 to the present, explaining how their content and mood paralleled national mores and politics. Some titles are laudatory, some chauvinistic, and others frivolous. Biographical screenplays both glorify and damn various leaders. Some films bombard viewers with horrific experiences, while goofy science-fiction titles feature wraiths and flying saucers. There are love stories, as well as films revealing Japanese prisoner-of-war deprivations and Nazi concentration-camp atrocities.
