Abstract:

In the spring of 1935 a remarkable short subject series called The March of Time appeared on American motion picture screens, startling journalists and filmmakers alike. Released every four weeks to a monthly audience which, by 1938, totaled more than twenty million people in the United States and millions more abroad, its twenty-minute episodes addressed political, military, social, economic and racial issues never before touched in the American cinema. A cross between confrontational journalism and docudrama, it was provocative, amusing, irreverent and sometimes outrageous, and critics didn't always know what to make of it. Miraculously, it survived in American theaters for sixteen years, from 1935 through 1951, the only film series in the history of the American film industry to regularly explore controversial issues of the day. This complete collection also features five feature films, various additional TV series and specially created content.
