If one were to break the film down into its "propaganda" components, one of the first would have to be the effort on the part of its filmmakers to put their American audience at ease with the highly class-conscious British social structure which no film about Britain in the 1940s could hope to ignore.

She challenges the commonplace that pre-1935 films were uncensored and shows that Code administrators were ``always complicit to some degree with the aims of major film producers.'' However, the tentativeness of her conclusions leaves one with the sense that this is a work in progress.
In The Wages of Sin, Lea Jacobs uses the fallen woman film, which served as a focal point for public criticism of the film industry, to explore Hollywood's system of self-censorship and the evolution of the rules governing representations of sexuality.
The truth is that the fallen women films of the early thirties explored sensitive subject matter, were protofeminist, and that the sentiments expressed therein -- the notion, for example, that sex before marriage was acceptable -- soon became mainstream in women's films, at least until the intrusion of censorship.

 Wake Island at Celebrity-Fansites.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This epic war film was made as a factual film chronicle, an authentic picturization of America at war- the first of its kind since a Japanese "stab in the back", on 7 Dec 1941, had changed the course of American history.
In the making of this film, the United State Marine Corps provided Lieutenant Colonel Francis E. Pierce, USMC (later downed 6 confirmed Japanese aircraft, and C.O. of MCAD Miramar, 24 Oct 44-1 Apr 45) as technical advisor, and Lieutenant Colonel W. Farrell, USMC, as liaison officer.
Thus, the audience of 1942 at all home theaters laughed, cried, and howled as the Marines goofed-off, fought one another, and hit hard the enemy landing force in the final scenes.

 Dernier atout / The Last Ace in the Deck / 1942 / film review / Jacques Becker
Jacques Becker’s first film is a rather obvious attempt to emulate the American gangster movie / film noir genre.
Whilst not as stylish or confident as Becker’s subsequent policier, Touchez pas au grisbi (1953), it is an entertaining first foray in to the sleazy milieu of classic French film noir.
Mindful of censorship from the occupying Germans, Becker was almost obliged to set his film in a fictitious South American country, something which reinforces the artificiality and remoteness of the film and makes apparent its American gangster film origins.

 Slow Fade to Black: The Negro in American Film, 1900-1942:0195021304:Cripps, Thomas:eCampus.com
Set against the backdrop of the fl struggle in society, Slow Fade to Black is the definitive history of African-American accomplishment in film - both before and behind the camera - from the earliest movies through World War II.
But with the coming of World War II also came increasing pressure for wider, more equitable use of fls in films, leading eventually to more sympathetic casting of racial roles, such as that of Sam, the piano player in the 1942 classic Casablanca.
A lively, thorough history of African-Americans in the movies, Show Fade to Black is also a perceptive social commentary on evolving racial attitudes in this country during the first four decades of the twentieth century.
