    OPERATION MARKET GARDEN / GATEWAY TO GERMANY WWII ACT & FACT NEWSREEL 44674
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 17, 2016
    Released by the British Information Service in the aftermath of the Market Garden failure, this short black-and-white newsreel, part of the “Act and Fact" series and titled "Gateway to Germany,” begins with cheering crowds in September 1944, as the British 2nd Army roars through Belgium. Men, women, and children are shown reaching out to shake the hands of the soldiers at their convoys make their way through city streets at mark 00:20. The British 11th Armored Division are shown making their way to the outskirts of Antwerp at mark 01:00, where the Allies gain control of docks and railways in the city. Yet the war is not over for the Brits, we are told, as troops must continue fighting their way through the rest of Belgium. “The soldiers realize the days of their triumphant sweep are over. From here in, war is grim and unforgiving,” says the narrator at mark 01:34, as scenes of combat flash across the screen. “Battered by a merciless Germany rear guard, the troops press forward.” Meanwhile, the Allies launch an air strike on Holland, designed to get behind German water defenses and join the ground army “at the gateway to Germany.” Men of the British 1st Parachute Brigade are shown bailing out at mark 03:10 over Arnhem in the Netherlands, while enemy guns fall strangely quiet. As troops march through Eindhoven to meet the US 101st Airborne Division at mark 03:40, additional Allied aircraft soar overhead. Although troops were ordered to withdraw from Arnhem, as is shown at mark 05:25, Allied forces later regroup for a final assault beginning at mark 06:40, including a battle for Walcheren Island in late October. Canadian and British troops were eventually able to secure the area on November 2, 1944.

    “On Walcheren they call it Heartbreak Island. But the people who live here, bear on their coat of arms: ‘I struggle and emerge…,’” says the narrator near mark 09:15. “The people of Walcheren say, ‘The Lord made the water rise and He will make it fall.’ Our children will live to see these trees bear fruit again.” As the film closes, Allied troops are shown entering the harbor at Antwerp, “A lifeline of supplies for the armies of the Western front. Bought and paid for with the blood of courage and the strength of sacrifice, the gateway to Germany today stands open.”

    Operation Market Garden (17–25 September 1944) was an unsuccessful Allied military operation, fought in the Netherlands and Germany in the Second World War. Field Marshal Montgomery's strategic goal was to encircle the heart of German industry, the Ruhr, in a pincer movement. The northern end of the pincer would circumvent the northern end of the Siegfried Line giving easier access into Germany. The aim of Operation Market Garden was to establish the northern end of a pincer ready to project deeper into Germany. Allied forces would project north from Belgium, 60 miles (97 km) through the Netherlands, across the Rhine and consolidate north of Arnhem on the Dutch/German border ready to close the pincer.

    Several bridges between Eindhoven and Nijmegen were captured at the beginning of the operation. The 82nd Airborne Division's failure to capture the main road bridge over the river Waal at Nijmegen before 20 September also delayed the advance of XXX Corps. Only a small force managed to capture the north end of the Arnhem road bridge and after the ground forces failed to relieve them, the paratroopers were overrun on 21 September. The remainder of the 1st Airborne Division were trapped in a small pocket west of the bridge, having to be evacuated on 25 September. The Allies failed to cross the Rhine and the river remained a barrier to their advance into Germany until offensives at Remagen, Oppenheim, Rees and Wesel in March 1945. The failure of Market Garden to form a foothold over the Rhine ended Allied expectations of finishing the war by Christmas 1944.

    The Meet (1 Jul. 1961)

    Mike is recruited to track down counterfeiters.

    In a rare glimpse into Mike's bachelor pad we see an ultra modern TV called a Philco Tandem Predicta that had a 25' cord connecting the tube to the receiver as a kind of a remote control. The jingle or catchphrase in ads stated "Keep the set beside your chair - put the picture anywhere". Mike eats ice cream while watching an action adventure series "Dempsey of the Deep" which has a scuba diver as its protagonist.

    THE JAPANESE ARMY AND NAVY WWII RESTRICTED U.S. ARMY MOVIE 23514
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 19, 2016
    An official U.S. War Department film restricted in nature and produced by the US Army Pictorial Service, “The Japanese Army and Navy” is a black-and-white creation that “has been assembled from Japanese films and is designed for use in the Civil Affairs Training Schools conducted by The Provost Marshal General.” With that introduction, the World War II-era film opens at mark 00:48 by explaining the “Code of the Samarai” — highlighted by devotion to duty “and a loyalty to a Divine Emperor that gives in death its last full measure of allegiance.” (During World War II, that allegiance was to Emperor Hirohito).

    Japanese officers are trained in swordsmanship such as kendo or kenjutsu, as a demonstration of such martial arts skills is shown at mark 01:15. Fencing, the viewer is told, is an important combat training regimen, and also promotes stamina and alertness. Judo also has an influence on the Japanese character, it is said at mark 03:07, as synchronized movements are shown on the screen.

    Military training is ingrained in Japanese youth from an early age, the narrator explains. For a boy, training begins at age 6 and by age 12 he is in uniform and participating in annual maneuvers. By the age of 19, he is ready for induction. Demonstrations of strength and teamwork by Japanese soldiers and marines follow, and at mark 06:42 we are told, “The public claims the army as its own and looks to it for leadership.”

    The picture switches focus to the Imperial Navy at mark 08:37, but again, stresses the importance of training and regular maneuvers. In 1906, we are told, Admiral Togo Heihachiro explained, “Heaven gives the crown of victory only to those who by habitual training win without fighting and forthwith deprives of that crown those who content with one success give themselves up to the enemies of peace.” (Although Japan relied heavily on its army during WW2, the navy was charged with defending communication lines and territorial waters). The narrator continues to discuss various maneuvers implemented by Japan’s army and navy as training and combat scenes play out.

    “Many Japanese soldiers are so determined to die on the battlefield that they conduct their own public funerals before leaving for the front … It is admired as the spirit of the true samurai who enters the battle with no thought of his return unless victorious,” the narrator says at mark 13:36, as continued fighting scenes are shown. At mark 16:34, the viewer is told that the mantra for Japanese infantrymen is that “the enemy forces will be annihilated.”

    More training scenes are shown, as the narrator again explains the devotion of the Japanese soldier to the Emperor. “Through the youth of Japan, the army seeks to build within the nation a denial of self, an ardent loyalty. A devotion that glorifies death for the Emperor as life’s greatest reward.” Hirihito is shown beginning at mark 20:30 reviewing the Imperial Fleet at the harbor at Yokohama.

    Scenes of Japanese sailors and soldiers continue, and near mark 23:00, the narrator explains that there is some discord between the two branches of service, with the army more politically minded and therefore more able to able to gain appropriation and public support for their positions.

    “Into the spirits of soldiers like these had been infused the savage exhilaration of battle,” says the narrator at mark 27:15, as we see infantrymen gathered together.

    The final few minutes of the informative film are dedicated to Japanese military hospitals and medical hospitals, as numerous scenes of recovering soldiers are shown, along with images of Japanese troops training for winter maneuvers in the blinding snow.

    “The Japanese are still in a strong position,” says the narrator at mark 34:13. “It will require a great effort to defeat this closely knit, fanatically stubborn power.”

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting?

    Published on Aug 8, 2016
    This documentary will shed light on the clandestine wars fought between the US and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Rarely seen footage will show East Germany's secret police searching a citizen's home for evidence of contact with the west. In the United States, "McCarthyism" had begun to escalate. Ronald Reagan, an actor who would later become president, served as a spy for the FBI in Hollywood. The CIA secretly made plans to overthrow various third-world regimes. One of their first targets was Iranian Prime Minister Mossadegh. Recently gathered footage provides a unique view of the events that led to his downfall.

    During the Cuban Missile Crisis, a spy provided the US with important information on Soviet nuclear missile placement. The Soviet Union would later discover that this spy was Oleg Penkovsky, a colonel in Soviet military intelligence. Through recently gathered footage, we can get a clearer sense of the hidden struggle that occurred during the Cold War between the 2 super powers. As the Vietnam War intensified in the late 60's, the CIA and US military began an operation to eliminate communists in South Vietnam.

    1969 DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE PACIFIC COMMAND COLD WAR FILM 25004
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 23, 2016
    Beyond the West Coast of the United States are 85 million square miles of ocean, stretching from the Aleutian Islands in the north to the South Pole; past the Hawaiian Islands and onto Guam and the Philippines and continuing to Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean and beyond. In total, about 40 percent of the globe are covered by those waters — and are the responsibility of the United States Pacific Command. That dramatic narrative introduces the viewer to this color film and the unified combatant command of the US armed forces responsible for the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. (It is also the oldest and largest of the unified combatant commands.) Produced by the Department of Defense circa 1969, the film shows a montage of aircraft, soldiers, and sailors, as the narrator quotes President Dwight D. Eisenhower as saying that separate air, land, and sea warfare are no longer viable, and that all services must operate as a single unit under the command of the Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet (CINCPAC). At mark 03:08, an officer (played by veteran actor William Boyett) explains the purpose and mission of Pacific Command, as well as its chain of command.

    Following a reminder of the lives lost in World War II’s Pacific Theater at mark 05:10, the narrator explains that areas in the Pacific continue to be at risk, as a map of Southeast Asia is shown on the screen. Following a review of military commands in the Pacific, the film continues to explore the importance of Pacific Command, from the strategic position of B-52 bombers on Guam to the deployment of nuclear submarines beneath the water. Although the sea has been kept free, the narrator continues at mark 08:38, that is not the case for all lands, as the film shows scenes of US military personnel — “welcome guests” — mingling with residents, teaching them skills, or providing medical services. The viewer is also taken to various bases, including Clark Air Force Base and the US Naval Base at Subic Bay in the Philippines, with those stationed there poised to act if and when needed.

    At mark 10:50, the film takes its viewers to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North Korea and South Korea, as we learn how the armistice line is permanently lined by troops from the US 8th Army and the Republic of Korea — “a capable deterrent against overt Communist aggression.” Troops stationed in Korea are also shown socializing with residents and teaching boys and girls volleyball, as well as assisting with farming and creating roads and bridges. As the film takes us to the coast of Japan at mark 14:39, we see scenes at Tachikawa Airfield in Tokyo and army depots tasked with providing supplies to Pacific commands. At times, troops are also forced into combat, as the film shows several minutes of footage from the jungles of Vietnam beginning at mark 17:17, and an explanation that the US Army and Marine Corps are trying to “persuade” North Vietnamese forces to withdraw from the south, with assistance from the Air Force and Navy. The Navy and Coast Guard also aid South Vietnamese forces with stopping the re-supply of North Vietnamese forces, we learn starting at mark 20:35. With continued assistance from South Vietnamese forces, the Pacific Command will continue its efforts in Southeast Asia and across all 85 million square miles it is charged to protect, the narrator reminds the viewer, as the film comes to an end.

    1930s VINTAGE HAWAII & SURFING MOVIE WAIKIKI BEACH HONOLULU 44874
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 22, 2016
    Produced by Frederic Ullman, Jr., for Pictorial Films in the early 1940s, this relatively short “Sportreel” black-and-white film is titled “Riding the Crest” and takes it viewer to Honolulu, Hawaii. At mark 02:20, the narrator explains one of the island’s most popular sports: body surfing. (The title itself is a reference to surfing and the ability to successfully ride the crest of a wave.) The narrator explains the “how to” basics of surfing as we see scenes of novice and expert surfers out in the ocean. The viewer is also introduced to surfboarding starting at mark 03:04, in which the brave hearted are said to ride a “streamlined ironing board” as men are shown heading out to the Pacific Ocean and the narrator again explains the basics. Scenes of outrigger canoes follow, and at mark 05:44, the viewer is returned to surfboarding as we see a bikini-clad novice surfer practicing her balancing techniques on dry land, followed by more scenes of experienced surfers riding the waves. As the sun sets at mark 08:34, the narrator reminds the viewer that “so long as there is a surf on the island, there will be sport … and sportsmen to ride the crest.”

    COMBAT AMERICA WWII CLARK GABLE PROPAGANDA FILM REEL 1 23444
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 24, 2016
    After his beautiful wife Carole Lombard, was killed in a plane crash while working for the USO, a grieving Clark Gable couldn't face Hollywood anymore, so he joined up with the Army Air Corps. Gable famously requested that he be sent into actual combat. So naturally Hap Arnold decided he should make a movie about his combat group, the 351st Bombardment Group. Gable narrates this complete portrait of his outfit and appears in several short scenes where he interviews his comrades-in-arms. The focus of the film, though, is the group itself, especially the gunners. The film starts just after training is complete and the group flies to England to begin flying actual missions. The film covers all aspects of the lives of the gunners, from actual combat to leisure time, and from goofy hijinks to the gritty reality of seeing your buddies get killed or seriously wounded in combat. The film is quite similar to The Memphis Belle, though perhaps not as engrossing as that film. Still, the film has quite a bit of historical value as a portrait of combat and army life, and is one of the few long-length color documentaries to emerge from the war.

    The film starts with a letter from Hap Arnold: "1st Lieutenant Clark Gable is hereby directed to proceed to England ... for making a combat film dealing particularly with the combat phases of aerial gunnery ... ". Initial footage depicts aircraft flying over American mountains, with Gable narrating that this is what they are fighting for. Bob Hope also appears in the film, and the film mostly depicts 351st Bombardment Group life at RAF Polebrook. Combat footage begins three-quarters of the way into the movie and includes take off and return of aircraft. The film depicts a wall poster with target names and, for confirmed kills, swastika stickers. Footage at the end of the film includes a B-17 in an uncontrolled dive with a portion of the horizontal stabilizer missing and shoot-down of Messerschmitt Bf 109s. Intercut with the combat footage is close-up footage of machine gun firing from a B-17 waist gun port. Gable flew five World War II combat missions from May 4-September 23, and during one of them, his shoe was struck by an anti-aircraft shell. Gable's film crew included MGM cameraman Andrew J McIntyre; "1st Lt. Howard Voss, a sound engineer; Master Sgt. Robert Boles, a cameraman; Master Sgt. Merlin Toti, another cameraman; and 1st Lt. John Mahlin, a scriptwriter."

    The 351st Bombardment Group (Heavy), Eighth United States Army Air Force was based at Polebrook, Northamptonshire, England, during World War II. During the three years at Polebrook, the 351st B.G. had a total of 279 B17 Flying Fortresses on charge. These flew 9,075 sorties with 7,945 of them dropping 20,778 tons of bombs. The gunners in the Group fired off 2,776,028 rounds of ammunition and were credited with destroying 303 enemy aircraft.
    The Group flew 311 credited missions and lost 124 B 17's in combat.

The focus of the film, though, is the group itself, especially the gunners. The film starts just after training is complete and the group flies to England to begin flying actual missions. The film covers all aspects of the lives of the gunners, from actual combat to leisure time, and from goofy hijinks to the gritty reality of seeing your buddies get killed or seriously wounded in combat. The film is quite similar to The Memphis Belle, though perhaps not as engrossing as that film. Still, the film has quite a bit of historical value as a portrait of combat and army life, and is one of the few long-length color documentaries to emerge from the war.

    The film starts with a letter from Hap Arnold: "1st Lieutenant Clark Gable is hereby directed to proceed to England ... for making a combat film dealing particularly with the combat phases of aerial gunnery ... ". Initial footage depicts aircraft flying over American mountains, with Gable narrating that this is what they are fighting for. Bob Hope also appears in the film, and the film mostly depicts 351st Bombardment Group life at RAF Polebrook. Combat footage begins three-quarters of the way into the movie and includes take off and return of aircraft. The film depicts a wall poster with target names and, for confirmed kills, swastika stickers. Footage at the end of the film includes a B-17 in an uncontrolled dive with a portion of the horizontal stabilizer missing and shoot-down of Messerschmitt Bf 109s. Intercut with the combat footage is close-up footage of machine gun firing from a B-17 waist gun port. Gable flew five World War II combat missions from May 4-September 23, and during one of them, his shoe was struck by an anti-aircraft shell. Gable's film crew included MGM cameraman Andrew J McIntyre; "1st Lt. Howard Voss, a sound engineer; Master Sgt. Robert Boles, a cameraman; Master Sgt. Merlin Toti, another cameraman; and 1st Lt. John Mahlin, a scriptwriter."

    The 351st Bombardment Group (Heavy), Eighth United States Army Air Force was based at Polebrook, Northamptonshire, England, during World War II. During the three years at Polebrook, the 351st B.G. had a total of 279 B17 Flying Fortresses on charge. These flew 9,075 sorties with 7,945 of them dropping 20,778 tons of bombs. The gunners in the Group fired off 2,776,028 rounds of ammunition and were credited with destroying 303 enemy aircraft.
    The Group flew 311 credited missions and lost 124 B 17's in combat.

    CUNARD STEAMSHIP CO. RMS QUEEN ELIZABETH OCEAN LINER PROMOTIONAL FILM 45414
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 25, 2016
    Please note: our print of this film is not complete. We continue to look for a more complete print to post for you.

    Made for Cunard in the 1950s, "Getting There is Half the Fun" was produced byJohn Bransby Production. This promotional film showcases the RMS Queen Elizabeth and what passengers can expect on their journey, starting in New York City and ending in England. Launched by Cunard in September 1938, this magnificent 83,637-ton 1,031-foot-long vessel was the largest passenger ship in the world until 1962. With 761 cabins, she carried 2,283 passengers in luxurious comfort.

    The film depicts the Queen in all her majesty, offering an extensive full-color tour of her living, dining, and recreational facilities. From her classic cabins, kitchens, swimming pools and huge deck spaces to her elegant dining rooms, this film is a lasting tribute to the RMS Queen Elizabeth, which met a very unfortunate end in Hong Kong harbor in early 1972.

    The film also shows the Brittanic, the Mauretania, the Parthia, and other Cunard vessels.

    JAPANESE-AMERICAN 442nd REGIMENTAL COMBAT TEAM WWII ARMY NAVY SCREEN MAGAZINE #45 45524
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Aug 26, 2016
    This WWII issue of the Army-Navy Screen magazine tells the story of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, an infantry regiment of the United States Army, that was composed almost entirely of American soldiers of Japanese ancestry who fought in World War II. Most of the families of mainland Japanese Americans were confined to internment camps in the United States interior. Beginning in 1944, the regiment fought primarily in Europe during World War II, in particular Italy, southern France, and Germany.

    Beginning at the 7:10 mark another segment entitled "The American Way" tells the story of the presidential election of 1944. This wartime election pitted Incumbent President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Democratic nominee against Republican Thomas E. Dewey. Roosevelt won an unprecedented fourth term after the Tuesday, November 7, 1944 election. Turnout was great despite the fact that many Americans were overseas fighting the war, and the newsreel shows the ways that Americans were able to vote despite being overseas and working in support of the war effort.

    The 442nd Regiment was the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in the history of American warfare. The 4,000 men who initially made up the unit in April 1943 had to be replaced nearly 2.5 times. In total, about 14,000 men served, earning 9,486 Purple Hearts. The unit was awarded eight Presidential Unit Citations (five earned in one month). Twenty-one of its members were awarded Medals of Honor. Its motto was "Go for Broke".

    MACAO / MACAU HISTORIC 1930s TRAVELOGUE MOVIE 44854
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Sep 2, 2016
    Library Film, Inc. presents “Beacon of the East,” a circa 1945 black-and-white picture that takes its viewer to “Macao.” (Macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of China. It had been a part of the Portuguese Empire for more than 400 years). Much of the material in the film probably predates WWII, but it's difficult to know for certain. Because it was hardly impacted during World War II, an opening scroll for the film explains that the film features “authentic” scenes of the “ancient city of the Orient.” Scenes include the first lighthouse ever built on the China coast and surprisingly Mediterranean-style buildings. Chinese farmers are shown at mark 02:30 walking down Macao’s lone “highway” as they make their way to market. “They carry their heavy loads for miles slung on poles over their shoulders,” the viewer is told, while a few of the more affluent residents are shown traveling by bicycle. Away from the coastline, the viewer is shown more traditional Chinese structure, beginning near mark 04:00, while of the temple festivals and processions are shown starting at mark 05:30. The A-Ma Temple, Queen of Heaven, is shown at mark 07:00, along with many other sites, including a glimpse of many of the firecrackers the narrator says are made there, and an armada of the fishing junks that head out to sea every day, as the picture comes to an end.

    Macau also spelled Macao, officially the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, China. Macau is also bordered by the city of Zhuhai in Mainland China to the North and the Pearl River Estuary to the East and South. Hong Kong lies about 64 kilometres (40 mi) to its East across the Delta. With an estimated population of around 652,500 living in an area of 30.5 km2 (11.8 sq mi), it is the most densely populated region in the world.

    Macau was administered by the Portuguese Empire and its inheritor states from the mid-16th century until late 1999, when it was the last remaining European colony in Asia. Portuguese traders first settled in Macau in the 1550s. In 1557, Macau was rented to Portugal from Ming China as a trading port. The Portuguese Empire administered the city under Chinese authority and sovereignty until 1887, when Macau, through a mutual agreement between the two countries, became a colony. Sovereignty over Macau was transferred to China on 20 December 1999. The Joint Declaration on the Question of Macau and Macau Basic Law stipulate that Macau operate with a high degree of autonomy until at least 2049, fifty years after the transfer.

    Under the policy of "one country, two systems", the State Council of the People's Republic of China is responsible for military defense and foreign affairs while Macau maintains its own legal system, public security force, monetary system, customs policy, and immigration policy. Macau participates in international organizations and events that do not require members to possess national sovereignty.

    Macau is among the world's richest regions, and as of 2015 its GDP per capita by purchasing power parity is higher than that of any country in the world, according to the World Bank.

    1949 TRADER THORNE - Hugh Beaumont, Glen Denning - Sales motivational short
    captainbijou.com



    Published on Sep 4, 2016
    1949 Ford Motor Company sales motivational film starring four performers who went on to achieve fame or notoriety in radio and television.

    Hugh Beaumont (1909-1982), who plays "Joe Thorne" in the film was a supporting actor in dozens of films, portrayed Brett Halliday's wise-cracking detective, Michael Shayne in a series of programmers for Poverty Row independent, PRC in 1946-47. However, Beaumont is best known for his portrayal of Ward Cleaver on the television series Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963).

    Glen Denning (b. 1927) was cast as Space Patrol's heroic "Commander Kit Corry" when the live science-fiction adventure debuted on broadcasting March 9, 1950, as a Monday-through-Friday 15-minute show on a local Los Angeles station, KECA. However, Denning was replaced early in the show's run by former fighter pilot, Ed Kemmer (1921-2004), who remained with series throughout its run as "Commander Buzz Corry," Kit's younger brother.

    Veteran actor, Ed Prentiss (1909-1992), began his career in radio and spent the last years of his six-decade career active in films, television and as a voice artist. He may be best remembered for his portrayal of the high-flying hero, "Captain Midnight," a role he essayed on the ether for seven years.

    Former Northwestern University speech and diction instructor, Actress Hope Summers (1896-1979) was well past 5- when she made her television debut on the live, daily soap opera, Hawkins Falls in 1951. She made thirty-six appearances on the Andy Griffith Show during the 1960s (in earlier episodes her character was called Bertha), and five appearances on the post-Griffith spinoff, Mayberry R.F.D..

    Patrol Boat, River PBR in Vietnam | Military Special Forces

    Patrol Boat, River or PBR, is the United States Navy designation for a small rigid-hulled patrol boat used in the Vietnam War from March 1966 until the end of 1971. They were deployed in a force that grew to 250 boats, the most common craft in the River Patrol Force, Task Force 116, and were used to stop and search river traffic in areas such as the Mekong Delta, the Rung Sat Special Zone, the Saigon River and in I Corps, in the area assigned to Task Force Clearwater, in an attempt to disrupt weapons shipments. In this role they frequently became involved in firefights with enemy soldiers on boats and on the shore, were used to insert and extract Navy SEAL teams, and were employed by the United States Army's 458th Transportation Company, known as the 458th Seatigers.
