  Internet Archive: Details: Challenge to Democracy, A
Most of the reassurances the film tries to give that this is not what it appears to be are contradicted at later points in the film.
The film as a whole, as appalling as it is, is a fascinating historical record of one of the darker moments in the history of our government.
The film tries to reassure the viewer that the conditions in the camps are not too "soft" -- that the Japanese Americans there have to work hard and actually provide for many of their own needs, costing the taxpayer as little as possible.

 Toshiro Mifune Images: Poster Cards, Page 1
A documentary-style film staged in the defeatist atmosphere of 1944, the film depicts the lives of a devoted corps of female employees who were drafted to work in a munitions factory.
This film, produced in 1945, was finally screened in 1952, seven years afterwards because the subject of loyalty emphasized in this film was seen as advocating the feudalistic ideas of prewar Japan.
The first film Kurosawa made after the war, the script is based on an actual incident of political suppression, which occurred at Kyoto Imperial University in the early Showa period and has a woman in the lead role.

 In Remembrance- David Raskin
David Raksin, the film score composer whose theme from the 1944 film noir Laura became one of the most recorded songs of all time, has passed away on Monday, August 9, 2004 in Los Angeles, CA.
For the film Raksin wrote a haunting melody which plays repeatedly on the film's soundtrack to emphasize the lingering impact a murdered woman (Gene Tierney) has had on those whose lives intersected with hers.
The film was a hit and Johnny Mercer was enlisted to write lyrics for the main theme.

 Gaslight (1944 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gaslight is a 1944 film, considered film noir, directed by George Cukor starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer.
The makers of this film attempted to have all copies of the 1940 version destroyed, but they were unsuccessful as copies of the older version have survived and critics are divided as to which is actually the better film.
The term "to gaslight someone" – to make someone think he or she is going insane – derives from the titles and subject matter of these two films.

 Tarawa on the Web   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Hundreds of feet of film were shot by combat photographers on Betio, making the battle for Tarawa one of the most photographed in WWII.
The first film produced on the battle was titled "With the Marines at Tarawa" which included much of the color footage.
Another film that has come to my attention is, "Bloody Tarawa." It was shown to the 2nd Division Marines back in Camp Tarawa sometime after they had returned to Hawaii after securing Betio according to Ralph Browner.

 Laura (1944)
Laura (1944) is one of the most stylish, elegant, moody, and witty classic film noirs ever made with an ensemble cast of characters.
Trailers for the compelling film promised: "Never has a woman been so beautiful, so exotic, so dangerous to know!", and Gene Tierney (in her signature film role as Laura) delivered with exquisite elegance and sublime, breathtaking beauty.
The narration continues throughout the filmed tour, past an Oriental statue, wall-mounted ceramic heads, and a baroque grandfather clock with pendulum (the clock holds more meaning beyond its present context!).

 Film Fest Journal: Army, 1944   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Keisuke Kinoshita's wartime film, Army is anything but the rousing call to arms and reinforcement of patriotism that the authorities had envisioned the film would be.
I sense an almost elegiac tone in the film -- as if Kinoshita already felt (down deep) that the ongoing war had already been lost.
I was surprised by how much of what were clearly anti-militarist comments were retained in the film, like Ryu telling the friend that his son will probably die in battle, but that the country is more important...and he agrees with him and apologizes!

 Amazon.com: Laura (1944 Film) / Jane Eyre (1944 Film) [2 on 1]: Music: David Raksin,Bernard Herrmann   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Released in 1944, LAURA is among the most memorable examples of Film Noir, dark in overall tone but witty in dialogue in its complex story of a New York police detective who falls in love with the aura of a woman whose murder he investigates.
The LAURA suite offered here was apparently recorded in 1943, before the film went into general distribution--and the fact that 20th Century Fox troubled to create and record a suite version of the overall score indicates the studio's faith in the music's future popularity.
Even so, it seems safe to say that the only film score able to overshadow a Herrmann score is an even better Herrmann score, and while JANE EYRE does not really compare to the best of Herrmann's work it easily outstrips virtually every other film composer of the era.

 Laura (1944) - Channel 4 Film review
His obsession is one bizarre aspect of this hypnotic film noir, which Preminger took over from Mamoulian on the luckiest day of his life.
It is the sleekest of murder mysteries, and ahead of its time - not least in having a gay suitor for Laura, and possibly two.
The Hours somehow changed my perception of myself and those around me. The film has such a sad (yet marvellous) ending that you can't help but think about your own life.

 Cover Girl (1944)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Trivia: As she stated in her autobiography, Lauren Bacall had been wanted by Columbia to appear in this film as Harper's Bazaar cover girl (as she had appeared on Harper's Bazaar cover in March 1943), but instead filmed To Have and Have Not (1944) at Warner Bros. and became a star.
She's at her luscious best as an actress and dancer (with a pleasant singing voice from Anita Ellis) and is in splendid form as Rusty Parker, an ambitious showgirl and Gene Kelly shines as her hoofer boyfriend.
The film received five Oscar nominations, and it is an enjoyable backstage yarn about a girl who must decide between Broadway stardom and the hoofer she loves.

Aber nach einem schweren Autounfall, der ihn für einige Zeit ans Krankenbett fesselte, gab er den Formel-1-Traum auf, und statt selbst Rennen zu fahren, begann er Rennen zu fotografieren.
Und da der Film zum bis dahin größten Kassenhit in der Geschichte des Films wurde, machte der findige Lucas aus dem Projekt gleich eine auf neun Teile zu drei Komplexen angelegte Saga.
Gleichzeitig arbeitete er als Koautor und Produzent für den Film Jäger des verlorenen Schatzes (Raiders of the Lost Ark • USA 1980) von Steven Spielberg, der mit fünf Oscars ausgezeichnet wurde.
