Film industry in WWII:

Producer needs film, stills;

Personal collections sought


A French film company writes,

"We are currently in development of a documentary film about Hollywood Film industry during WWII.

"We are more precisely in search of photos and film footage concerning the involvement of Hollywood (directors, movie stars,...) in the war, directly (being enlisted, or in charge of filming battles, or directing training films) or undirectly (filmed during showes held for troops,...).

"We are very aware of Library of Congress and Nara's (National Archives and Records Administration) collection concerning this subject, but are looking also for more private or personal collections, which could help us find some more unreleased or badly known material.

"More specifically, we are looking forward to locate photos and/or footage of the following persons, during their involvement into Army Pictorial Center : John Ford, Sterling Hayden, George Stevens, Owen Crump, William Wyler, Darryl Zanuck, Franck Capra, Jack Warner,..."

If you know of collectors who may help, please forward a link to this site to them.  If you have any materials or information -- or would like contact information for this French film company, please write to the Webmaster.
