Many of the wartime entertainment shorts are largely propaganda. Donald's nightmare of working on a Nazi assembly line in "Der Fuehrer's Face" is still hilarious slapstick. The grimmer "Education for Death" and "Chicken Little" have aged less gracefully. Disney's oddest wartime project was Victory Through Air Power (1943), a live action/animation feature based on Major Alex de Seversky's controversial book that called for the adoption of long-range bombers. By the time it was finished, air power was a reality.
Front Lines also includes several health films made for the Office of Inter-American Affairs, and bond-buying shorts for Canada that reuse animation from Snow White and "Three Little Pigs." This collection of genuine rarities is a must-have for anyone interested in the history of animation, the Disney Studio, or America during WWII. (Rated G, suitable for ages 10 and older: violence, ethnic stereotypes, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

I bought this for the feature Victory through Air Power, one of the first films to mix animation with live action. The rest is clearly dated propaganda and Leonard Maltin says so. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Mark K. Rempel
This is a great set for the historian. It shows how different media outlets were used to promote the American effort in World War II. It's an entertaining set to watch!!!Published 9 months ago by James Southard
