Past is prologue. Our greatest gift from the Greatest Generation was freedom from fascism...until now. Relive, and celebrate, how evil was faced, discussed, dramatized...and fought.
Classic films were the weapon.
The Greatest Generation received instruction, inspiration, and, of course, entertainment from a source that affected them perhaps more than even the generations to follow, who grew up with greater technology: the movies.
The movies of the day tell us a lot about that generation, that first generation that fought fascism, what was expected of them, what they hoped to achieve, and how they saw themselves. It is not a perfect measuring stick, but the movies of the day show a passion for fighting fascism by everyday people that may shame their twenty-first century descendants. Or at least, it should.
