Abstract:

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.

"In Ottumwa, Iowa, our cameras have found a living example of the way of life and the true form of liberty of the American people. "Ottumwa, U.S.A." is touchingly poignant in its exploration of the priceless heritage which is the American way of life. This is a visual record of Ottumwa at work, its youth, its schools, and its religious institutions. It is first the story of a city, and second, the story of the Army's involvement with a city. This is a different kind of story than is usually released in this television series. From its opening scene, the film grows in its appeal to capture the charm and warmth of a Midwestern community. Around the meaning of freedom and liberty, writers Reginald Wells and Harry Middleton, and producer Ben Stelson constructed a succession of moods that reflect enormous style and imagination. There are hundreds of communities across the broad face of the nation that reflect the image of Ottumwa, Iowa ... typical citadel of the American way of life."--National Archives and Records Administration.
