Hollywood Patriots: Ronald Reagan
A successful Hollywood actor and U.S. president, Ronald Reagan was known above all else for his unyielding patriotism regarding the United States. This box-set contains three war-themed documentary shorts in which Reagan participated, that each demonstrate his admiration and loyalty toward his home country. First on the bill is Recognition of the Japanese Zero Fighter (1943), about the experience of a U.S. military pilot who must learn to distinguish between American and Japanese aircraft. Next up is the 1943 Rear Gunner, with Reagan and Burgess Meredith examining the training of a WWII rear aerial gunner. Finally, the 1963 General Patton Story finds Reagan narrating a short biographical profile of General George S. Patton.
