Why We Fight

David Cassidy writes:  I am working on a documentary about the Why We Fight series. Specifically about Frank Capra's involvement. If there is anyone out there who worked on this series and might be interested in participating or have interesting material, please contact me.  I am searching for people who worked in Capra's shop during WWII in the production of the Why We Fight films. This is a fantastic site and I think if anyone can help steer me it is you.  I am working on a documentary and book about the creation of these films and am looking for materials (photos etc) from that time. I am also looking for individuals to interview for the program. It is a great subject with an amazing history and great people involved. I look forward to hearing from you.  Thanks, David Cassidy, davecassidy77@aol.com
