Predominately about supply, logistics and transportation, this film shows railroads, aircraft and trucks delivering war material to distant front lines in China, Europe, and Africa. At the 30 second mark, P-39 Airacobras are seen being turned over to the Russians. At the 1 minute mark, German...

The film also provides information about methods of defense regarding these bombs and how to put out the fires while protecting oneself against the possible...

From IMDb : The crew of HMS submarine Sea Tiger have their leave (and assorted family problems) cut short when they are recalled for a special mission: sink the new German battleship Brandenburg. En route, they learn that their target has entered the heavily defended Baltic; rather than fail, they follow it. Tension builds as they approach their target. After the attempt, escape seems impossible...unless they can refuel in enemy waters. Stars: John Mills, Louis Bradfield, Ronald Millar, and...

The Battle of Midway chronicles a significant moment in U.S. History, as have other Ford films like Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) and My Darling Clementine (1946), but the focus here is on ordinary Americans filmed at the time, not famous historical figures seen in retrospect. Although the use of a hand-held 16mm camera will strike some as uncharacteristic of Ford's style, there are many ÂFordian touches throughout the film. Ford weaves voiceover and music into the real footage of the battle,...

Hope someone uploads a better copy! Noel Coward produced, wrote the screenplay, composed the score, and starred as Captain Edward Kinross. Coward also officially codirected, though he handed the reigns to David Lean (his directorial debut). Also stars: John Mills, Bernard Miles, Celia Johnson, Kay...
