    Savior- 1998
    biblesnbarbells



    Published on Jul 13, 2016
    "Savior" is a brutally honest war film that looks unblinkingly at how hate and prejudice can pose as patriotism. It stars Dennis Quaid as an American named Guy, whose wife and child are killed by a Muslim terrorist bomb in Paris. He walks into the nearest mosque, murders men at prayer and then disappears into the French Foreign Legion. Six years later, he turns up in Bosnia, as a mercenary fighting for the Serbs against the Bosnians

    "We fight for no country, no faith, no political cause," he is told on the day he's sworn into the legion. "We fight for honor." One would like to think that honor might involve country, faith or politics, but only the Legion deserves the loyalty of a legionnaire, and it's this kind of macho, death-intoxicated craziness that Guy encounters in Bosnia. The Bosnians and Serbs have religious differences, but the film argues that much of the blood-hate on both sides involves psychotic male societies in which women are chattel--to be raped if they're not yours, and killed if they're yours and have been raped.

    Guy buys into this ethic in the early scenes of the movie, blaming all Muslims for his family's murder by a lunatic fringe. Later, he is forced to focus on individual people and finds it is not so easy to hate when you know someone. Empathy is the enemy of tribalism.

    In Bosnia, he and his best friend Dominic (Stellan Skarsgard) kill for hire, and sometimes discuss what they do. Guy: "You've done nothing wrong here." Dominic: "It feels like I did." We see Guy use a sniperscope to take aim at an innocent boy looking for his goat. Guy kills him. A flashback shows how Guy's friend was killed by a girl concealing a grenade. An eye for an eye.

    A truce is declared. Guy and his Serbian comrade Goran (Sergej Trifunovic) take custody of a pregnant Serbian woman. Goran knows the woman's family. In a tunnel, he drags the woman out of the car and starts kicking her in the stomach. Her crime: being pregnant with a Muslim child.

    "She was raped," Guy protests. This is a meaningless concept to Goran. She has been defiled, and if she were a decent woman, then of course she would already have killed herself. No blame attaches to her rapists, and we assume Goran himself has enthusiastically raped as many Bosnian women as convenient, trusting them to kill themselves or be killed by their fathers, brothers or helpful male neighbors.

    Guy, who has spent years killing for hire, who himself has killed in revenge, now finds he can stomach no more. He kills Goran and finds himself in possession of the woman, named Vera (Natasa Ninkovic), and her child. All of this is prologue to the film's central sections, in which Guy undergoes a change of heart because circumstances force him to empathize with these people instead of objectifying them as targets. His situation is complicated because Vera buys into the poisoned macho logic and refuses to nurse or care for the baby. The story arrives at a point where her own father hands her a gun and expects her to shoot herself.

    Francois Truffaut once wondered if it was really possible to make an anti-war movie, since war films were inherently exciting, and we tend to identify with one side or the other. Here is an anti-war film. It helps, I suppose, that we see it from outside: Most American audiences view the civil wars in the former Yugoslavia as insane. While one side or the other might seem to make a better ideological case, the fighting is based on ancient blood hatred, and the hatred is founded not on religion but also on tribalism: If you are not like me, then I hate you. The primitive attitudes toward women make it easier to see how many fighters on both sides are killing for reasons more pathological than patriotic.

    MK V Deep-Sea Diving Dress.
    By 1905, the Bureau of Construction and Repair had designed the MK V Diving Helmet which seemed to address many of the problems encountered in diving. This deep-sea outfit was designed for extensive, rugged diving work and provided the diver maximum physical protection and some maneuverability.

    The 1905 MK V Diving Helmet had an elbow inlet with a safety valve that allowed air to enter the helmet, but not to escape back up the umbilical if the air supply were interrupted. Air was expelled from the helmet through an exhaust valve on the right side, below the port. The exhaust valve was vented toward the rear of the helmet to prevent escaping bubbles from interfering with the diver's field of vision.

    By 1916, several improvements had been made to the helmet, including a rudimentary communications system via a telephone cable and a regulating valve operated by an interior push button. The regulating valve allowed some control of the atmospheric pressure. A supplementary relief valve, known as the spitcock, was added to the left side of the helmet. A safety catch was also incorporated to keep the helmet attached to the breast plate. The exhaust valve and the communications system were improved by 1927, and the weight of the helmet was decreased to be more comfortable for the diver.

    After 1927, the MK V changed very little. It remained basically the same helmet used in salvage operations of the USS S-51 and USS S-4 in the mid-1920s. With its associated deep-sea dress and umbilical, the MK V was used for all submarine rescue and salvage work undertaken in peacetime and practically all salvage work undertaken during World War II. The MK V Diving Helmet was the standard U.S. Navy diving equipment until succeeded by the MK 12 Surface-Supplied Diving System (SSDS) in February 1980 (see Figure 1‑8). The MK 12 was replaced by the MK 21 in December 1993.

    WWII G.I. MOVIE WEEKLY 1945 MANILA, LINER SS NORMANDIE, 79004
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 20, 2016
    Produced in 1945, this WWII G.I. MOVIE WEEKLY is one of the original programs which were presented to members of the Armed Forces during World War II. This series of films, which reached our overseas forces for 204 weeks until October of 1945, included 1,042 features and 1,051 shorts. After WWII, the series continued commercially through the Army.

    The first segment of this film is MANILA - U.S. TROOPS POUR IN FOR DRIVE TO JAPAN (00:00:35:00) is narrated by Dwight Weist. This segment starts off by showing soldiers arriving in the Philippines, direct from the battlefields of Africa and Italy. Here, soldiers are seen boarding trains for their new camps, and being given their new assignments. At (00:02:00:00) you can see WAC Fifth Air Force Bombers and fighters at Clark Field. The second segment, ULSTER - BRITAIN'S ROYAL FAMILY VISITS NORTH IRELAND – (00:02:27:00) is narrated by Jackson Beck and features King George VI. Next, BY AIR - TELEPHONE LINES LAID TWO MILES A MINUTE (00:03:08:00) is narrated by Dwight Weist and features a C-47 laying telephone line. This is followed by YUGOSLAVIA - TITO REVIEWS VICTORY PARADE IN BELGRADE is narrated by Jackson Beck (00:04:23:00) featuring the spectacle of Belgrade’s victory parade. The last newsreel, THIRD FLEET SHELLS JAPAN (00:05:28:00) features the voice of Beck once again, and showcases the first bombardment of the Japanese homeland during the war.

    INFORMATION PLEASE (00:08:25:00) featuring host Clifton Fadiman, is a quiz show that serves as a fundraiser for the American Red Cross. The four contestants are all known figures of the day, including a sportscaster, an actress and a conductor.
    Narrated by John Nesbitt, A LADY FIGHTS BACK (00:19:30:00) is a short documentary from 1944 that tells the story of the liner SS Normandie. The short was an installment in the Passing Parade film series. The saga of the Normandie is recounted from her life as a luxury liner (00:20:51:00), to the horrific fire that nearly destroyed her, (00:25:40;00) and finally, her resuscitation to join in the war effort. (00:27:25:00)

    The SS Normandie was built in Saint-Nazaire, France, for the French Line Compagnie Générale Transatlantique (CGT). She entered service in 1935 as the largest and fastest passenger ship afloat; she is still the most powerful steam turbo-electric-propelled passenger ship ever built. During service as the flagship of the CGT, she made 139 westbound transatlantic crossings from her homeport of Le Havre to New York. Normandie held the Blue Riband for the fastest transatlantic crossing at several points during her service career, during which the RMS Queen Mary was her main rival.

    THE LAMBETH WALK / SHORT FILM THAT OUTRAGED ADOLF HITLER 34534b
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 20, 2016
    During WWII, "The Lambeth Walk" was a very popular song. Originally part of the 1937 musical Me and My Girl (where the song takes its name from a local street Lambeth Walk in London) the music was repurposed as the soundtrack to this anti-Nazi propaganda film "Schichlegruber Doing the Lambeth Walk". Made by the British Ministry of Information's Charles A. Ridley and released in the USA by Leslie Winik (who made a popular series of films called "Sportsbeams") this clever short features manipulated newsreel footage of Hitler and his goose-stepping troops. It is said that Nazi officials were enraged by this short clip and that a "furious Fuhrer" was outraged by it. No doubt they would have been, as the film takes deadly serious, impressive and threatening images of Hitler and his war machine and reveals them to be nothing more than pomp, circumstance, and hubris. Incidentally, the reference to "Schichlegruber" may not be clear to a modern audience. Adolph Hitler's father Alois was the illegitimate child of Maria Schicklgruber. She later married Johann Georg Hiedler, and Alois much later changed his last name to the stepfather's name (and at some point, "Hiedler" came to be spelled "Hitler.") The reference by Winik was clearly also meant to be an insult to the Nazi's supreme leader, although whether that would have resonated with contemporary audiences is hard to say!

    According to some sources, Charles A. Ridley used this specific music track because members of the Nazi party including Josef Goebbels had called the tune "Jewish mischief and animalistic hopping". The footage used came directly from the film "Triumph of the Will". "Lambeth Walk" was widely distributed through newsreel companies in the US and UK and became wildly popular in theaters. In this sense it can be regarded as one of the first real political remix videos.

    SEA POWER IN THE PACIFIC WWII U.S. NAVY PACIFIC CAMPAIGN FILM 76264
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 21, 2016
    The United States Navy gave viewers a look at “Sea Power in the Pacific” during World War II in this nearly 30-minute film. The film opens in 1931 China as Japanese bombs rain down from the sky. The horrors of war are shown in grim detail at mark 01:05, including the murder and mass burial of Chinese civilians. Japan was poised to control all of the Pacific and the resources of the East Indies, including its oil and rubber. “The only power the Japanese aggressor had to face,” we’re reminded at mark 01:50, “was an opposing sea power.” And with that statement, the image of sailor appears on film, ready to defend. The grim reality of that stance comes out at mark 02:05 as footage of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, flashes across the screen. With the Japanese seizing control of the Pacific after damaging the U.S. Navy, the film touts the power of the Navy and its eagerness to rebuild, relying on aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, and battleships. At mark 04:35, we are taken to the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942, as the Imperial Navy and the U.S. and Australian navies battled for a position near New Guinea. Although it proved to be a Japanese tactical victory, it served as a strategic victory for Allied forces. The Navy repelled the Japanese at Midway at mark 04:45, and landed Marines at Guadalcanal at mark 05:45. “Our forces were numerically inferior,” we’re grimly told at mark 07:05, “but we hung on and little by little chopped away at his ships.”

    With the Japanese forced to switch to defensive tactics rather than offensive maneuvers, the Navy reversed the wartime strategy of the Japanese. The balance of power at sea had switched, and at mark 07:55 the viewer is told, “Now the Japs would have to fight for what he had.” The film takes us through the Solomon Islands and Naval victories across the Pacific Theater. Even so, the United States had to continue to hold command of the sea. “Command of the sea tell us where the land war will be fought,” the narrator notes at mark 09:55. The importance of aircraft launched from aircraft carriers and carrier escorts are shown near mark 12:00 as strafing missions on Japanese targets are revealed. “This force is G.I. Joe’s insurance that the enemy he meets on the beach will get no help from home.” As ships bomb inland targets and planes continue to rain terror from the sky, the film proclaims that such operations are a joint effort hell bent on victory. “G.I Joe has gone to work, and the fleet that brought him here will stay and support him until he wins the final decision,” we’re told at mark 13:00. “This is the pattern of amphibious assault.” With the U.S. now in charge of much of the Pacific Theater, the Navy could make its way to Hollandia, New Guinea … and move closer to Japan. The Mariana Islands would be next, with the lifeless bodies at mark 17:50 reminding us, once again, of the horrors or war. The air battle at mark 19:00 further touts Naval wartime superiority over their enemy. With Rota, Guam, Aguijan, Tinian, and Saipan secure, the Allies could ready a strike on Japan. The Battle of Leyte Gulf, in October 1944, the largest naval battle of WW2, once and for all confirmed Allied sea power. “Never again would (the Japanese) contest our control of the seas,” the viewer is told at mark 23:25. Securing Iwo Jima and Okinawa would follow in 1945. “From these bases we could apply the atomic bomb at the instant of its development, hastening the end of the war,” it is noted at mark 28:00. And with that prophetic statement, a mushroom cloud rises over Hiroshima, Japan, at mark 28:10.

    THE NEXT OF KIN WWII PROPAGANDA MOVIE EALING STUDIOS 1942 PART 1 77834
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 21, 2016
    THE NEXT OF KIN, also known as Next of Kin, is a 1942 World War II propaganda film produced by Ealing Studios.

    The film was originally commissioned by the British War Office as a training film to promote the government propaganda message that "Careless talk costs lives". After being taken on by Ealing Studios, the project was expanded and given a successful commercial release.

    After World War II and up until at least the mid 1960s, services in British Commonwealth countries continued to use The Next of Kin as part of security training.

    Plot summary: The British army is preparing an attack on a German-held French port. German intelligence use agents in England to discover the intended target by piecing together information from different sources, including conversations overheard in pubs, railway stations, shops and other public places.

    Originally, the commando raid depicted was intended to be a complete failure. However, the War Office were uncomfortable about showing such a defeat. In the final version, the raid is successful, albeit with heavy losses. Winston Churchill reportedly wanted the film banned as a threat to morale, but was eventually persuaded of the importance of its message.

    Cast includes:
    Mervyn Johns as No 23, Mr Davis
    John Chandos as No 16, his contact
    Nova Pilbeam as Beppie Leemans
    Reginald Tate as Major Richards
    Stephen Murray as Mr Barratt
    Jack Hawkins as Brigade Major Harcourt (billed as 2nd Lt. Jack Hawkins)
    Geoffrey Hibbert as Private John
    Philip Friend as Lieutenant Cummins
    Phyllis Stanley as Miss Clare
    Mary Clare as Mrs. Webster
    Basil Sydney as a naval captain
    Joss Ambler as Mr Vemon
    Brefni O'Rorke as Brigadier
    Alexander Field as Private Durnford
    David Hutcheson as an intelligence officer
    Torin Thatcher as a German general
    Thora Hird as an ATS driver with a puncture
    Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne appear in cameos as two "careless talkers" on a train at the end of the film. The two men made many appearances together in British films of the 1940s, following their successful pairing as "Charters and Caldicott" in Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes.

    AROUND THE WORLD IN POLARIS POLARIS NUCLEAR BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINES IRBM 29594
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 25, 2016
    The scroll at the start of this 28-minute U.S. Navy film informs the viewer that part of the mission of the United States Navy is to “maintain the Polaris Missile System as a major instrument in the preservation of world peace.” So starts our journey “Around the World of Polaris” and an examination of nuclear ballistic missiles, their submarines that were in place during the Cold War, and their various ports of call in the late 1960s. Actor and announcer Ed Reimers, who appeared in a series of documentary films made by the Lockheed Space and Missile Systems Division, is our guide as he introduces us to Captain Benjamin S. Sherman, Jr., commander of Submarine Squadron (SubRon) 14 at mark 02:30, who explains the goal of the squadron is to provide mission-ready vessels at a moment’s notice. We also hear from Captain P.G. White, Jr., commanding officer of the USS Thomas Jefferson (SSBN-618), docked at Holy Loch, Scotland, (where she was stationed from 1963-1967); and Captain R.A. Maxwell, commander of the submarine tender USS Simon Lake (AS-33). Their mission was to assist Polaris submarines in whatever way necessary, including maintenance and resupply. At mark 07:00, the films becomes a sort of visual tourism brochure. Sailors (and the viewer) get a look at life in Scotland, including the traditional Highland Games and the Edinburgh International Festival. Nearly six minutes later our tour concludes and we’re taken across the globe at mark 12:48 to Hawaii, where the Polaris sailor can rejoin his family for some rest and relaxation and an examination of Polynesian culture. At mark 17:20, volcanoes erupt and lava bubbles and flows as Reimers, discussing Mauna Loa and standing at Killauea, reminds the viewer, “Wherever you go on these Hawaiian Islands, you are literally standing on a volcano.” The twang of a Hawaiian guitar at mark 18:18 takes down mountainsides along beaches and into blue-green pools and of course, surf-worthy waves. At mark 20:00, we’re reminded that this film is a U.S. Navy production, with word that much of the sailors’ time in Hawaii will be spent at the weapon systems training school at Pearl Harbor before being flown to Guam, where they will be assigned to a Polaris submarine and begin another long patrol. We’re left at mark 21:50 with some closing thoughts from Captain Patrick J. Hannifin, commander of Submarine Squadron 15 and the man who, in 1968, assumed command for all Polaris submarines in the Pacific Fleet in Guam. And then … the viewer is left with images of the beautiful palm-lined beaches and sun-bathing beauties on Guam as a submarine dips below the Pacific Ocean.

    Weaponers of The Deep - POLARIS NUCLEAR SUBMARINE FILM SSBN 644, ROTA SPAIN 20830
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 7, 2014
    Produced by the Navy in 1967, "Weaponeers of the Deep" documents the training and life of a submarine-based missile technician assigned to the nuclear-powered submarine USS Lewis and Clark, SSBN 644, operating out of Rota, Spain.

    USS Lewis and Clark (SSBN-644), a Benjamin Franklin class ballistic missile submarine, was the first ship of the United States Navy to be named for the explorers Meriwether Lewis (1774–1809) and William Clark (1770–1838), who carried out the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-1806.

    After shakedown and missile firing off Cape Kennedy, Florida, in 1966, Lewis and Clark began deterrent patrols, armed with Polaris A3 ballistic missiles. On 21 July 1972, Lewis and Clark completed conversion of her ballistic missile tubes to carry Poseidon C3 ballistic missiles. On 18 December 1972, the Gold Crew successfully launched one Poseidon C-3 missile in support of Lewis and Clark's Demonstration and Shakedown Operation (DASO).

    On 8 April 1973, Lewis and Clark deployed for an operational deterrent patrol. On 19 June 1981, Lewis and Clark successfully fired four Poseidon C-3 missiles in a Follow-on Operational Test. On 23 July 1981, she began a Poseidon refueling overhaul at Newport News Shipbuilding. On 13 June 1985, Lewis and Clark successfully launched four Poseidon C-3 missiles in a Follow-on Operational Test.

    Deactivated while still in commission on 1 October 1991, Lewis and Clark was decommissioned on 27 June 1992 and stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 1 August 1992. Her scrapping via the U.S. Navy's Nuclear-Powered Ship and Submarine Recycling Program at Bremerton, Washington began on 1 October 1995 and was completed on 23 September 1996.

    The Cold War: In Enemy’s Depth

    In the depths of the oceans, the cold war was a deadly game, with more than 20 collisions between American and Soviet submarines and countless other tense encounters among vessels of various nations. The underwater arena was perhaps the most merciless of the cold war, with its promise of an icy grave to all the men whose damaged ships could no longer surface. The advent of the nuclear submarine in the 1950s revolutionized naval warfare. Many new ships were constructed, including top-secret espionage vessels such as the US Navy’s “research” submarine NR 1.

    For the first time on television, we are shown this ship and learn about the true missions of such stealth machines. The role of British, French and German submarines is also examined in this one-hour documentary.

    SOMEONE SPECIAL U.S. NAVY SEALS VIETNAM WAR ERA MOVIE 33674
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 26, 2016
    This 23-minute film, presented by the Naval Special Warfare Training Center, introduces the viewer to “Someone Special” … U.S. Navy SEALS. The SEALs (an acronym for the navy’s Sea, Air and Land Teams), are an elite special operations force and part of the Naval Special Warfare Command. Someone Special was the official U.S. Navy recruiting film for the U.S. Navy SEALs during the Vietnam War era.This film was shown to all U.S. Navy recruits during their recruit training, and it was designed to motivate young sailors to volunteer for SEAL training. The film covers the following topics:

    War Games Demonstration: What S.E.A.L.s do and how they do it
    How to become a S.E.A.L.

    Overview of Basic Underwater Demolition Team/SEAL Training (BUD/S)

    BUD/S: First Phase (Physical Training): PT exercises, beach running, obstacle course training, long distance swimming, surf passage and rock portage, hydrographic reconnaissance, log PT
    Hell Week: Bringing each man as close as possible to his physical and mental breaking point

    BUD/S: Second Phase (Land Warfare): Demolition techniques, rappelling, small unit tactics, live fire exercises at San Clemente Island, UDT cast and recovery training, beach clearing with live demolitions

    BUD/S: Third Phase (Diving Phase): SCUBA training, ocean compass navigation, mock attacks on ships, submarine lock-in & lock-out training

    BUD/S Graduation

    Life in The Teams: Mark XV underwater breathing apparatus training, SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) training, US Army Airborne training, High Altitude Low Opening (HALO/HAHO]) training, rock climbing, arctic training, desert training, jungle training


    The film jumps right into the action as SEALs are shown at mark 00:50 jumping off the back of a speeding boat into the sea. They emerge from the water near mark 01:35 and take to the beach, their weapons and supplies in hand, and being to take up positions as part of their practice assault. As attack helicopters near the site, SEAL snipers take out the enemy at mark 03:25 as reinforcements arrive by air. By mark 05:00, the SEALs are safely aboard their helicopters and whisked away. The first five minutes of action are without narration; only a fast-paced music soundtrack accompanies the film. That changes at mark 05:40 as the viewer is finally introduced to the history of the SEALs, dating to May 1943 and World War II prior to the Allied invasion of Normany, France. Then merely considered underwater combat demolition experts (or “frogmen,” they continued their actions through the end of WWII and by the Korean War were being used not only to clear beaches but also for commando raids. President John F. Kennedy’s interested in “unconventional warfare,” we’re told at mark 06:18, the SEAL Teams were officially formed in 1962 and used in the Vietnam War. At mark 06:55, we’re introduced to some of the requirements of being a SEAL, including high endurance, aggressiveness, and personal determination. Volunteer recruits, upon passing a basic physical fitness regimen, are assigned to Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL Training (BUDS) for a 25-week training session. Divided into three phases, the courses include basic training exercises designed to “harden flabby muscles grown used to soft living,” we’re told at mark 07:55, as recruit division commanders bark instructions. At mark 10:10 the viewer is taken to “Hell Week,” an intense period that tests each man’s potential breaking point — both physical and emotional — via a series of strenuous tasks that take SEAL recruits to the point of exhaustion. “Persevering under miserable condition such as these can mean the difference between the success or failure of a mission,” the narrator stresses at mark 11:07. Those who survive Hell Week, however, have proven themselves worthy of continued training and basic SEAL skills. The second phase of training, introduced at mark 13:00, concentrates on dozens of land warfare and demolition skills, including live-fire maneuvers, while the third phase, at mark 16:05, “develops combat swimmers into combat divers.” Upon graduation, the new SEALs are assigned to teams either in Coronado, California or Little Creek, Virginia … and a future filled with continued training with such equipment as the Mark 15 Underwater Breathing Apparatus, parachute training, assignment to a SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) team, or even advanced training in hostile desert, jungle, or arctic climates.

    GERMAN WEHRMACHT & LUFTWAFFE HOME MOVIES FRANCE AIR BASE, FUNERALS & DIEPPE AFTERMATH 1942 33724
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 26, 2016
    One of several films which came back to the United States in the rucksack of an American G.I., this silent 16mm home movie begins with footage of German troops in forest camouflage going on patrol. It's believed that this material is from occupied France sometime after August, 1942. Later on in the film, you will see footage from the Luftwaffe, and of Dieppe after the August raid (see below).

    At the 2:51 mark, troops are shown conducting combat drills and getting a bit of exercise, moving across exposed terrain and at the 4:43 mark, they are shown prepping a machine gun tripod.

    At 10:30, some good natured nurses are shown playing croquet with the men.

    At 11:05, a solemn funeral service is held for fallen comrades, with many officers in attendance. At 11:55, a grave marker of Rudolf Planz is seen with the year 1942 visible on it. It's possible this is Rudolf Planz of the Luftwaffe.

    At 12:10, what appears to be a French town is seen.

    At 12:30, the scene switches to a German air base where a number of fighter aircraft are seen dispersed on the field. At 16:45, a game of cards is played by the pilots while waiting for a mission to develop.

    At 17:11, some good natured socializing with some women is seen, followed by some push ups.

    At 18:00, a smashed town is seen, probably Dieppe in the aftermath of the Canadian raid. A British tank is seen on the waterfront with its tread blown off, and lots of equipment strewn on the beach including helmets. More tanks are seen on the beach at the 19 minute mark and following.

    The Dieppe Raid, also known as the Battle of Dieppe, Operation Rutter during planning stages, and by its final official code-name Operation Jubilee, was an Allied attack on the German-occupied port of Dieppe during the Second World War. The raid took place on the northern coast of France on 19 August 1942. The assault began at 5:00 a.m., and by 10:50 a.m. the Allied commanders were forced to call a retreat. Over 6,000 infantrymen, predominantly Canadian, were supported by The Calgary Regiment of the 1st Canadian Tank Brigade and a strong force of Royal Navy and smaller Royal Air Force landing contingents. It involved 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British troops, and 50 United States Army Rangers.

    Objectives included seizing and holding a major port for a short period, both to prove that it was possible and to gather intelligence. Upon retreat, the Allies also wanted to destroy coastal defences, port structures and all strategic buildings. The raid had the added objectives of boosting morale and demonstrating the firm commitment of the United Kingdom to open a western front in Europe.

    Virtually none of these objectives were met. Allied fire support was grossly inadequate and the raiding force was largely trapped on the beach by obstacles and German fire. Less than 10 hours after the first landings, the last Allied troops had all been either killed, evacuated, or left behind to be captured by the Germans. Instead of a demonstration of resolve, the bloody fiasco showed the world that the Allies could not hope to invade France for a long time. Some intelligence successes were achieved, including electronic intelligence.

    Of the 6,086 men who made it ashore, 3,367 (almost 60%) were either killed, wounded or captured. The Royal Air Force failed to lure the Luftwaffe into open battle, and lost 106 aircraft (at least 32 to flak or accidents), compared to 48 lost by the Luftwaffe. The Royal Navy lost 33 landing craft and one destroyer. The events at Dieppe influenced preparations for the North African (Operation Torch) and Normandy landings (Operation Overlord).

The film documents the October raids made by the Eighth Air Force on targets in Anklam, Marienburg, and Gdynia in Poland, all industrial centers for the Nazi war machine. The raids were made by B-17 and B-24 heavy bombers. General Hap Arnold called the series of attacks "the greatest strike ever". According to Arnold, they helped cripple German aircraft production and signaled the beginning of the end for the Luftwaffe. The documentary documents these three air raids from planning, to briefing, preparation, and then reveals in unparalleled sequences the brutal battles waged at 30,000 feet.

    Battle of Rehe: "China At The Front" 1933 Young Marshal Zhang Xueliang; Sino-Japanese War

    This film was labeled 1927 and was stated to be of the Chinese Civil War. However, this seems to be in error. The film shows "Marshal of All Chinese Forces, Chang-Tsuch-Liang" who is by modern spelling actually "Young Marshal" Zhang Xueliang. Then the film depicts "General Sun-Huan-Cahng" who appears to be in current spelling Sun Dianying. The action is said to be taking place near the Great Wall, as the Battle of Rehe indeed was, and speaks of plans to "Keep China United and Repel Invaders" which also appears to refer to fighting the Japanese. The film is silent.

    At the Battle of Rehe (February 21 to March 4, 1933) Japan captured the Inner Mongolian province of Rehe from Chinese warlord Zhang Xueliang and annexed it to their Mancuhrian puppet state of Manchukuo. On March 2, Sun Dianying mounted a counterattack and penetrated to near the Japanese headquarters. This may be the event recorded in the film, which is presented as a Chinese victory against the foreign invaders. But on March 4, the Japanese captured Chengde the capital of Rehe, and annexed the province, which they claimed they needed as a buffer zone against the Chinese.

    The Battle of Rehe (simplified Chinese: 热河战役; traditional Chinese: 熱河戰役; pinyin: Rèhé zhànyì, sometimes called the Battle of Jehol) was the second part of Operation Nekka, a campaign by which the Empire of Japan successfully captured the Inner Mongolian province of Rehe from the Chinese warlord Zhang Xueliang and annexed it to the new state of Manchukuo. The battle was fought from February 21 to March 1, 1933...

    On February 23, 1933, the offensive was launched. On February 25, Chaoyang and Kailu were taken. On March 2, the Japanese 4th Cavalry Brigade encountered resistance from the forces of Sun Dianying, and after days of fighting, took over Chifeng. Sun Dianying mounted a counterattack against the Japanese 6th Division on the same day, and at one time penetrated to near the Japanese headquarters. On March 4, Japanese cavalry and the 1st Special Tank Company with Type 89 Tanks. took Chengde the capital of Rehe...

    Zhang Xueliang or Chang Hsueh-liang or Chang Hsiao-liang (張學良; 3 June 1901 in Haicheng, China – 15 October 2001 in Honolulu, Hawaii), occasionally called Peter Hsueh Liang Chang and nicknamed the "Young Marshal" (少帥), was the effective ruler of northeast China and much of northern China after the assassination of his father, Zhang Zuolin, by the Japanese on 4 June 1928. He was an instigator of the 1936 Xi'an Incident, in which Chiang Kai-shek, the leader of China's ruling party, was arrested in order to force him to enter into a truce with the insurgent Chinese Communist Party and form a united front against Japan, which had occupied Manchuria. As a result, he spent over fifty years under house arrest, first in mainland China and then in Taiwan. He is regarded by the Chinese Communist Party as a patriotic hero...

    THE HUNTER KILLERS U.S. NAVY ATLANTIC FLEET ANTI-SUBMARINE WARFARE FILM 21034
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jul 31, 2016
    “The Hunter Killers” is a relatively short, color, United States Navy film produced in 1967. The film introduces us to the United States Atlantic Fleet (since renamed the United States Fleet Forces Command) and the Anti-Submarine Carrier Task Group. Their mission: to find and destroy enemy submarines and to protect “friendly shipping” in the world’s oceans. At mark 01:20, the film joins a group of pilots and crewmen as they arrive onboard the aircraft carrier USS Wasp to join the air group for a tour of duty. At mark 02:45, in the ship’s ready room, the men are briefed on what they can expect on their mission “as they assume the challenges of anti-submarine warfare.” At mark 03:24, it is explained that missions are often flown under demanding, less-than-ideal conditions, both day and night. Operating from aircraft carriers, the task groups are expected to work at peak performance at all times, the narrator explains. At mark 05:00, a Grumman S-2E Tracker, the primarily long-range detection and localization system aircraft, is shown launching from a carrier, followed by a Grumman E1E Tracer (the task force radar plane), as it heads out to search for enemy submarines. As a crew boards a Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King helicopter, the audience is told that those men must also be trained in all aspects of anti-submarine warfare. “The helicopter … can not only pinpoint a sub’s position but it can attack and destroy a submarine without other assistance.” The film continues at mark 08:20 by showing the audience a typical training exercise in which an enemy submarine is located by a radar plane. As crews onboard the carrier pour over information, they dispatch helicopters and a Tracker to pinpoint the sub’s location beneath the waves. As each unit employs its own specialty, a kill is recorded at mark 11:24. “So long as the unfriendly submarine poses a threat to our country and the free world’s safety and security, the anti-submarine forces will remain on station, patrolling, searching, practicing, improving,” the narrator explains, as the film comes to a close.

    TRUE ADVENTURE TV SHOW SCUBA DIVING IN BERMUDA EPISODE 22974
    PeriscopeFilm II



    Published on Jun 3, 2016
    This 1960s episode of “True Adventure” by host and producer Bill Burrud, opens with the shirtless host asking viewers, “Have you ever heard that the sea holds many mysteries? Well, it’s true! How would you like to go for a swim and find a jeweled cross worth $75,000?” With that, the viewer is taken to Bermuda at mark 1:22, where images taken by underwater photographer Peter Stackpole introduces audiences to the wonders of deep sea diving and exploration. Such treasures have been submerged under the seas for hundreds of years, we are told, after the vessels upon which they were held sunk. Traveling with renowned shipwreck diver Teddy Tucker, he and the film crew prepare for an excursion at mark 03:15, but inclement weather interferes with their plans. With calmer seas, the explorers find evidence of a submerged wreck from the 1590s at mark 04:37 and dive in. Fanning the sand from the ancient timbers, the divers uncover human bones and cannon balls among the reefs — along with a few sharks. The divers head to the surface by mark 07:35, but not before Tucker finds a golden cross studded with emeralds. “They begin to suspect that it may be the most spectacular single discovery in the history of treasure hunter,” Burrud says at mark 09:00. “This is the moment treasure hunters dream of.” Returning to the harbor near mark 10:00, the divers continue to sort through their treasures, uncovering silver “pieces of eight” dated 1592. At mark 11:00, the focus changes from treasure hunting to a “modern salvage operation” of a steamer that sunk in the 1920s, as Tucker tries to detach the vessel’s propeller blades. Waiting for the debris to settle and for sharks to finish consuming fish killed by the blast, the divers return to the water and eventually retrieve three propeller blades. At mark 14:00, Tucker and the camera crew are back underwater to investigate L’Hermine, a 300-foot, 60-gun French frigate that sunk in 1838, and retrieve one of her guns. Other salvage operations uncover paver bricks, vintage bottles, and even old dyes. Come mark 19:45, divers visit the remains of the San Antonio, a Spanish vessel wrecked in 1621 off the Bermuda coast, finding a few links of gold chain, daggers, pottery, and leather shoe soles — about $20,000 worth of treasure. “Treasure hunting sounds like a boyhood dream, doesn’t it?” Burrud says at the end of the film. “But as we’ve seen it’s a dream that can come true.”

    U.S. COAST GUARD ENEMY SABOTAGE & TERRORISM FILM "SHOULD THE DAY EVER COME" 78684
    PeriscopeFilm II



    Published on Jul 6, 2016
    “Should the day ever come when our ports and ships are targets for enemy sabotage, these men will be ready. Should the day ever come when the sea around us becomes a haven for enemy submarines, these men will be ready. Should the day ever come when this barren stretch of beach becomes a port of entry for enemy agents, these men will be ready.”

    It is with this dramatic preface that the viewer is introduced to the 17,000 officers, men, and women who make up the United States Coast Guard Reserves, via this color film entitled “Should the Day Ever Come.”

    Produced in the mid- or late 1960s, the film flashes various scenes of the USCG in action, from pilots to mechanics to helicopter crew members. “The roles and missions of the United States Coast Guard in peacetime are well known to most Americans…,” the narrator explains beginning at mark 01:43. “There influence is felt in all areas of merchant shipping and they are known to all those who cruise our waterways in pleasure boats.” This in addition to USCG assignments in the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as saving those in peril at sea.

    But even in peacetime, the narrator explains near mark 03:00, the Coast Guard must maintain a state of readiness in case of attack. “The men and women of the Coast Guard Reserves are a well-trained, well-disciplined force in readiness.”

    A montage of scenes are shown, as we see enlisted personnel undertaking a variety of duties onboard a ship during their two-week active assignments. Scenes of firefighters are mixed with crew members repelling down ropes during training exercises before we are taken to the Port of New York at mark 04:46. In the event of a national emergency, we are told, this port and other ports across the country will be placed under full security, with the Coast Guard taking the lead in protection. Security is just one role of the USCG, we are told, as members must also learn how to control merchant ships, regulate movement of vessels in territorial waters, control the movement of small crafts, and inspect cargo, as well as search-and-rescue techniques.

    To ensure reservists are ready, especially in the area of port security, regular meetings are held, the narrator explains starting at mark 07:00, and receive training in anti-sabotage techniques, anti-espionage operations, and chemical and radiological defense procedures.

    At mark 07:41 we see the USCGC Courier (WTR-410) as reservists learn how use winches and other cargo-handling gear. And at mark 08:33 we catch a glimpse of the USCGC Rockaway (W377) during a discussion of how the Coast Guard regularly conducts military exercises … just in case … to make vessels ready for war, whether they be utility boats, patrol boats, or cutters. If necessary, the Coast Guard will activate vessels currently part of a “moth ball fleet,” as the camera, at mark 12:00, shows rows of inactive or decommissioned ships.

    In preparation, reserves learn a myriad of fields including electronics, communications, and navigation, “to be ready, should the day ever come.”

    Aviation also plays a major role in Coast Guard operation, the viewer is informed starting at mark 13:00, whether in peacetime or wartime. It is also imperative in search-and-rescue or surveillance operations, through the use of amphibious aircraft, long-range patrol planes, helicopters — all of which are shown via footage. Officers and enlisted personnel also are trained in aviation support units.

    Near mark 17:00, this film returns its viewer to the sea, and the USCG duty to enforce enforce all federal laws pertaining to the merchant marines, which transports cargo and passengers during peacetime and in time of war becomes an auxiliary to the United States Navy.

    “Should the day ever come, reservists, training and merchant marine safety units will be called to active duty as needed to investigate marine disasters and to inspect ships under construction for the wartime fleet,” we are told at mark 18:10.

    The abundance of information included in this film is not lost on the narrator, who remarks at mark 21:08, “Because the roles and missions of the Coast Guard Reserves in wartime are so many and so varied, every man must be a specialist — not in one job but many.”

    FORD THEATER TIN CAN SKIPPER with SCOTT BRADY 23024
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 5, 2016
    Beginning with a 2 minute long Ford Motors commercial, this black and white film TIN CAN SKIPPER is an episode of the TV show Ford Theater that first aired in season seven in 1956. This is a melodrama starring B-list actors Phyllis Kirk and Scott Brady as a couple, he (Hutch) skipper of a Navy destroyer (USS Boarman), and she (Nora) being the fiance of one of his buddies (Jolly) who happens to be part of the crew of Hutch’s ship. Hutch and Nora fall madly in love while Jolly is off on assignment.
    At time code 19:00 the story of the USS Boarman unfolds showing us that Jolly was killed in battle and Hutch, as captain didn’t act to rescue him because it would have cost the lives of 5 men to do so. It’s filled with battle scenes at sea.

    Hutch feels guilty and vows never to see Nora again. He can’t forgive himself. Nora, still in love with Hutch, and not one to give up easily, tells her story to an older salty Commander, who it coincidentally turns out is the father of Jolly. He confronts Hutch and tells him that he needs to forgive himself and that he, the father of Jolly, forgives him. Film ends with Hutch and Nora lip-locked as the music swells and more Ford Motor promos fill the screen.

    Also stars John Hoyt, William Leslie, Thom Carney and William Challee.

    Ford Theatre, spelled Ford Theater for the radio version and known as Ford Television Theatre for the TV version, was a radio and television anthology series broadcast in the United States in the 1940s and 1950s. At various times the television series appeared on all three major television networks, while the radio version was broadcast on two separate networks and on two separate coasts. Ford Theatre was named for its sponsor, the Ford Motor Company, which had an earlier success with its concert music series, The Ford Sunday Evening Hour (1934–42).

    The first Ford Theatre on U.S. television appeared on October 17, 1948, near the dawn of regularly scheduled prime time network programming. It was an hour-long drama, broadcast live, as was most television of the era. This series used primarily Broadway actors. The program began as a monthly series, switching to bi-weekly a year later, in alternation on Friday nights at 9pm Eastern time with the 54th Street Revue. During this period, programming included adaptations of Little Women, with June Lockhart and Kim Hunter, and One Sunday Afternoon, with Burgess Meredith and Hume Cronyn. During the following season, the final season for the program on CBS, the alternation in the same time slot was with Magnavox Theater.

    A half-hour filmed Ford Theatre returned to the airwaves on NBC for the 1951-52 season on Thursday nights at 9:30pm Eastern. At this time production was moved from New York to Hollywood, and featured actors based there rather than on Broadway. Some of these programs were comedies instead of dramas. Performers appearing during this era included Frank Bank, Scott Brady, Claudette Colbert, Charles Coburn, Ed Hinton, Peter Lawford, Ida Lupino, Thomas Mitchell, Karen Sharpe, Ann Sheridan, Barry Sullivan and Beverly Washburn. Also appearing for the first time together were Ronald Reagan and Nancy Davis, in an episode entitled "First Born", which first aired on February 3, 1953. In October 1954, Ford Theatre became the first network television series to be filmed regularly in color. During this period, Ford Theatre finished in the Nielsen ratings at #30 for the 1952-1953 season, #7 in 1953-1954, #9 in 1954-1955 and #13 in 1955-1956.

    After four seasons on NBC, the program was shown for a final season on ABC during the 1956-57 season. The time slot was changed to Wednesdays at 9:30pm. The last prime time broadcast of Ford Theatre was on July 10, 1957.

    In 1954, Billboard voted it the best filmed network television drama series

    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 4, 2016
    Produced in the mid-1960s, this film discusses the early era of the Cold War (1947-1953) and documents the moves and countermoves of West and East during that period. The film uses maps and authentic footage to show events that gave impetus to the Cold War in Europe and the hot conflict of Asia. The film includes President Truman addressing Congress to discuss foreign policy in Greece and Turkey at 2:06, the Truman Doctrine policy of containment and the birth of the Marshall Plan (2:50).

    The Czech Communist revolution is seen at 3:40, and the Berlin Crisis at 4:00. The Berlin Blockade and subsequent Air Lift is seen starting at 5:00.

    At 7:30, the United States is shown testing atomic bombs and using the atomic monopoly as a Cold War gambit. Dean Acheson the U.S. Secretary of State is seen at 7:50 discussing this aspect. In Sept. 1949 the Russians detonated their own bomb (8:40), permanently changing the calculus.

    The Korean War is seen at the 9:50 mark, with coverage of the United Nations actions to halt the war. At 13:40, MacArthur is seen ignoring the Chinese warning and proceeding deep into North Korea, resulting in a Chinese invasion of Korea. The stand-off between Truman and MacArthur is shown at 15:20 with Truman's dismissal of Mac.

    The armistice agreement in Korea is seen being signed at the 16:50 mark and new President Dwight Eisenhower is seen making remarks about the end of the Korean War.

    Transporting Wartime Cargo: Hannibal Victory - 1945 Educational Documentary - WDTVLIVE42
    wdtvlive42 - Archive Footage



    Published on Aug 15, 2016
    Hannibal Victory, produced by the US Maritime Commission in 1945, features a voyage of the Victory ship named for Mark Twain’s hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. The cargo includes eight locomotive engines bound for delivery to a railroad being built by the US Military in the Philippines. During the voyage the crew balances its routine of duty and leisure activities with periods of high alert as enemy vessels threaten the ship.

    The United States Merchant Marine is made up of civilian-owned merchant vessels. During wartime these vessels may be called upon to serve as an auxiliary to the US Navy. During World War II, several thousand ships carried supplies around the world for the military. Merchant vessels were often slow and not heavily armed, and the casualty rate for merchant crew members was 1 in 26, one of the highest of all branches of service. Despite this, merchant mariners did not receive formal recognition of their veteran status until 1988.

    BEIJING CHINA 1930s TRAVELOGUE MOVIE "LAND OF KHAN" 44014d
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 16, 2016
    This 1934 black-and-white film takes the viewer to “Peiping — Land of Khan.” (At the time, China’s capital, Beijing, was known as Beiping — but written as “Peiping.” It has also been known as Peking.) An opening expository intertitle informs the viewer at mark 00:10: “Peiping means ‘Peace in the North.’ The modern city, once a perpetual battlefield, is now a quiet sightseeing mecca for world travelers and a favorite ‘port of call’” for United States sailors. Innumerable little stores line the narrow streets of the city, another title card tells us at mark 01:07, as we then see various scenes around the city as the narrator explains that the city is divided into two sections: the Chinese City (Outer City) and the Tartar City (Inner City), surrounded by a “great wall built long ago to resist the attacks of barbarian hordes.” Within the Tartar City is the Forbidden City, we are told at mark 01:48, as scenes of daily life appear on the screen. “The Chinese of Beiping are today hospitable and friendly. Their ancient animosity toward Westerners has disappeared,” the viewer is assured. Sailors visiting the city, the narrator continues at mark 02:38, will have the opportunity to purchase a number of souvenirs, including jade, or visiting a gambling house on the outskirts of town for a game of fantan (a game of chance similar to roulette). Scenes filmed around the city continue, and at mark 04:00 a title card explains that “Emperors raised temples and pagodas to their gods” as many such structures are shown, including the Jade Fountain Pagoda and the Temple of Heaven, as American sailors and the Chinese are shown in a variety ofantanf scenes sans narration. Mark 06:10 takes the viewer to the Qing tombs, an imperial mausoleum complex, as sailors are shown climbing upon ancient structures, and a title card at mark 06:54 tells of the “Manchu Versailles” — built by the Emperor Kang Hsi. (The Kangxi Emperor was the fourth emperor of the Qing Dynasty who ruled from 1661-1722.) Scenes of his summer palace fill the screen as the narrator details its construction.

    Northwest Territories, Canada: "Land For Pioneers" circa 1950 Intl Film Bureau 15min

    Promotional film recruiting settlers by telling of the resources hidden away in Northern Canada.

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

    Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    The Northwest Territories (NWT; French, les Territoires du Nord-Ouest, TNO) is one of three federal territories of Canada. The Northwest Territories entered the Canadian Confederation July 15, 1870, but the current borders were formed April 1, 1999, with the creation of Nunavut.

    It had a population of 41,462 as of the 2011 census, showing little change from the 2006 census.

    In 1967, as a result of recommendations by the Carrothers Commission, Yellowknife became the capital.

    While neighbouring Nunavut is mostly Arctic tundra, the Northwest Territories has a slightly warmer climate and is mostly boreal forest (taiga), although about half of the territory is north of the tree line...

    Located in northern Canada, the territory borders Canada's two other territories, Yukon to the west and Nunavut to the east, and three provinces: British Columbia to the southwest, and Alberta and Saskatchewan to the south. It has a land area of 1,183,085 km2 (456,792 sq mi).

    Geographical features include Great Bear Lake, the largest lake entirely within Canada, and Great Slave Lake, the deepest body of water in Canada at 614 m (2,014 ft), as well as the Mackenzie River and the canyons of the Nahanni National Park Reserve, a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Territorial islands in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago include Banks Island, Borden Island, Prince Patrick Island, and parts of Victoria Island and Melville Island. Its highest point is Mount Nirvana near the border with Yukon at an elevation of 2,773 m (9,098 ft).

    The Northwest Territories reaches for over 1,300,000 km2 (500,000 sq mi) so there is a large climate variant from south to north. The southern part of the territory (most of the mainland portion) has a subarctic climate while the islands and northern coast have a polar climate.

    Summers in the north are short and cool, with daytime highs in the mid teens, and lows in the single degrees. Winters are long and harsh, daytime highs in the mid −20 °C (−4 °F) and lows around −40 °C (−40 °F). Extremes are common with summer highs in the south reaching 36 °C (97 °F) and lows reaching into the negatives. In winter in the south it is not uncommon for the temperatures to reach −40 °C (−40 °F), but can also reach the low teens during the day. In the north temperatures can reach highs of 30 °C (86 °F), and lows can reach into the low negatives.

    In winter in the north it is not uncommon for the temperatures to reach −50 °C (−58 °F) but can also reach the single digits during the day. Thunderstorms are not rare in the south. In the north they are very rare, but do occur. Tornadoes are extremely rare but have happened with the most notable one happening just outside of Yellowknife that destroyed a communications tower. The Territory has a fairly dry climate due to the mountains in the west...

    As of 2012 there are 34 official communities in the NWT. These range in size from Yellowknife with a population of 19,234 to Kakisa with 45 people. Governance of each community differs, some are run under various types of First Nations control, while others are designated as a city, town, village or hamlet, but most communities are municipal corporations. Yellowknife is the largest community and has the largest number of Aboriginal peoples, 4,105 (22.2%) people. However, Behchoko, with a population of 1,926, is the largest First Nations community, 1,730 (91.5%), and Inuvik with 3,463 people is the largest Inuvialuit community, 1,335 (38.9%). There is one Indian reserve in the NWT, Hay River Reserve, located on the south shore of the Hay River...

    WWII ABANDON SHIP EVACUATION & SURVIVAL RESTRICTED TRAINING FILM 21964
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 17, 2016
    A “restricted film to be shown to authorized personnel only,” this black-and-white United States Navy Training Film, produced under the supervision of the Bureau of Aeronautics by Wilding Picture Productions, Inc. during World War II, is titled “Abandon Ship.” The picture opens with a battle at sea, as battleships and aircraft carriers take aim at enemy aircraft overhead. At mark 01:05, a bugler sounds an alert and alarm blares in the background as the narrator explains: “Least known but the most dreaded command in the signal language of the sea is abandon ship. Within a few minutes, all the science and skill of modern sea warfare are reduced to the simple fundamental of survival.” Seamen are shown escaping a quickly sinking vessel as they make their way toward life rafts and the narrator continues how no number of drills can fully prepare you for such action. Even so, such drills can save a life. At mark 02:00, the film begins its discussion on the proper methods of abandoning ship, “learned the hard way by survivors of proud ships of war and dirty tramp steamers,” and from reports on preventative measures including proper maintenance of a vessel, how to swim through burning oil, and how to avoid sharks. “More than 85 percent of the crews of ships lost in this war to date have survived and returned to action against the enemy,” it is said at mark 02:53.

    As a Navy lieutenant is shown reviewing such reports, the title card “Digest of Survivor’s Testimony. Subject: Advance Preparation,” appears at mark 03:08, and the viewer is told that “the time to get ready to abandon ship is — yesterday.” Sailors are reminded to wear their lifejackets at all times when in a combat zone. Preparing the essentials ahead of time is also important, as crew members are shown putting together a kit including a knife, whistle, flashlight, and fishing gear. “Never mind your camera or guitar. Stick to the things that may save your life.”

    Laying out clothing before heading to your bunk is also advised, in case you are forced to dress in total darkness following an attack, as a sailor demonstrates at mark 05:25. Having more than one route topside is also a necessity, the narrator explains, as sailors are shown practicing a drill. “Practice by closing your eyes and finding your way by touch,” it’s recommended at mark 06:23. Sailors are advised to regularly practice evacuation drills, and to remember to remember that many ships knocked out of action have stayed afloat for several hours, despite the damage. “Stick with the ship until ordered overside. Follow orders Keep calm,” the narrator explains at mark 09:25, adding that the USS Yorktown (CV-5) stayed afloat for more than a day after being struck by torpedoes at the Battle of Midway in June 1942.

    “Methods of Leaving Ship” are explored starting at mark 09:52, and include the reminder to use a cargo net or Jacob’s ladder when abandoning a vessel, as sailors demonstrate. Others will have to use an escape line, making sure to clear the way when entering the water. “Never dive overboard, because of the danger of hitting something in the water and breaking your neck,” it is said at mark 11:11. Mark 12:09 introduces the viewer to ways to escape through oil, even burning oil, with the viewer being told that panic can be just as dangerous, if not more so. Mark 16:47 begins a discussion of emergency flotation tactics, and again the importance of being prepared. “As the Lexington was sinking, the ship’s company had time even to raid the ice cream stores,” it is said at mark 20:00. The USS Lexington (CV-2) was sunk during the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942. At mark 26:48, the conversation switches to “Defense Against Marine Life,” and as sharks are shown patrolling the waters, the narrator suggests an underwater explosion will kill any sharks nearby and scare away others. While not every shark is a man-eater, they, along with barracuda and the Portuguese man o’ war, still pose a danger. And if spotted by an enemy plane while in the water, it is advised at mark 29:09 to throw off a lifejacket and hide under debris or beneath the water. “And pray you won’t be seen.”
