Summary
This book explores how the Hollywood studios used sophisticated strategies of propaganda to ideologically unite the country during World War II. Through such films as Sergeant York, Casablanca, They Were Expendable, Mrs. Miniver, and others, the studios appealed to the public's sense of nationalism, demonized the enemy, and stressed that wartime sacrifices would result in triumph. --Publisher
