These four short films show essential news and propaganda functions of the movies during the Great War of 1914-1918. In those days before television and radio, fiction films in movie theaters were the most widely shared public experience while news films presented the most detailed and potent images of military life and front line action. Some news films were faked but some was authentic, obtained at great risk by daredevil combat cameramen. The fourth film is a 1975 compilation of early footage

Lyrical and lighthearted, this is a comedy about all kinds of love-- physical and intellectual, sentimental and cynical, enduring love between friends and romantic love at first sight. It is also about the roles society sometimes forces us to play. Is there really a "natural difference" between a Duke's daughter and a commoner? Are men really stronger than women? Do we merely "act" these parts because they are expected of us?
