All else having been said about this terrific collection of Disny wartime shorts and educational films, I'd like to bring attention to the included full length feature, "Victory Through Air Power." Other reviewers have been somewhat tentative about sitting through it, and admittedly, the prospect of a lecture on the strategic neccessity of building long range air bombers might, at first glance, induce a glazed look in the eye. Let me say, though I'm hardly a WWII military buff and can understand the hesitation, having now seen it, I can state with assurance it is quite fascinating and brilliantly made. "Power" describes the complex problems and solutions of fighting a war on far flung shores with a visual clarity and concision that are a marvel, helping us understand firsthand both the immensity and gravity of the obstacles American military strategists had to overcome to insure victory - an outcome that was far from certain in the early years of the war. Disney's talents as a story teller are well attested to - but here, we see Disney as a shrewd, incisive communicator building a case and hammering home points with a lively blend of straightforward illustrations, kinetic diagrams and striking pictorial metaphors. Propaganda? Yes, but with genuine, hard hitting substance. "Power" not only has terrific historic and educational value, but is a model worthy of study for modern day communications scholars. This one belongs in the National Film Archive. Not to be missed!
