Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
When America entered World War II, Hollywood rolled out its top guns to aid the war effort. But no one rallied the troops like Walt Disney, who enlisted his animators to create morale-boosting cartoons, military training films, and call-to-arms propaganda films. This fascinating two-disc set vividly demonstrates how films could educate, enlighten, and stir an audience. Compelling short subjects such as the nightmarishly funny "Der Führer's Face," the grim "Education in Death," and the parable "Chicken Little" made the case for war and demonized the enemy. This set contains a true rarity -- the 1943 feature "Victory Through Air Power" -- which was never reissued theatrically and was heretofore unavailable on home video. Host Leonard Maltin adds context to this fascinating treasure trove, which is so much more than a simple blast of Greatest Generation nostalgia.

    An Interesting Eye-Opener At American History Done The Disney Way!!!

    I'm fairly new to the Walt Disney Treasures DVD sets and after reading some reviews of them at other sites and deciding on whether or not to purchase any because of the mixed commentaries, I finally gave in and ordered/bought my first two sets, of course, this being one of them less than a month ago. I've watched some of the shorts mostly and still haven't completed watching all of them. Some of the shorts I've already seen on Youtube and I haven't even gotten to the bonus material yet. One of the highlights on this is the full-length feature film Victory Through Air Power some of which I already saw on here for the first time. Suddenly history has gotten more exciting because of these mostly short films of which the two discs consist. Very informative and most of them may be easy to get into with the exceptions of the Four Methods of Flushing (since it's an instructional short about the various techniques of applying rivets on a plane) and maybe The Thrifty Pig. Plots of these shorts range from combating the enemies to healthcare to how the first airplanes were developed. It's great for history class and I'd recommend it because both WW and WWII are important to look back on our country's history and would be another great way to show our patriotism. Both the video and quality on these are crystal clear. Although I should mention and warn that on all the WDT sets, there's an intro that movie critic Leonard Maltin always gives prior to the DVD menu, as well as giving a foreword in the From The Disney Vault section to explain the controversy surrounding some certain shorts, if there are any that fall under that banner. They can't be fast forwarded/skipped, but even though they may be irrelevant or unnecessary, they're only a few minutes, like less than 5, so if you could look pass that, then they're really not that bad and they're not much of a big deal. I still love it and I'm glad I'm one of those lucky enough to come across it on this site and then own. Now I hope if only by luck or miracle the same would happen with others that I haven't seen here that I'd like to get/own such as the first Silly Symphonies (mainly for the China Plate short) despite the supposed limited run of copies or Disney wises up and reissues certain WDT sets. I wish I could, I would if I could, but someone should ask Leonard via E-mail if he could ask and convince Disney to reissue some of the Treasures DVDs. Hopefully they will if they see more support for them like I finally showed. Recommended.
