WORLD WAR II MOVIE POSTERS
This catalogue is dedicated to movie fans everywhere and to those who value History's heroic moments. These movie posters of the Second World War represent those films produced while the Great Conflict was raging throughout the globe. We have 174 such posters which were culled from the Library’s collection of approximately 5,000 original movie posters. These artistic creations were displayed in the theaters when the pictures were shown in the 40’s and 50’s.
Fifty-four of the posters will be exhibited
in the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial
Library. The time is right for such an exhibit, because of the great pride in our country after the unspeakable tragedy of September 11, as well as a deeper appreciation of that “greatest generation” who unreservedly fought a necessary and just war against murderous tyrannies grinding their way around the world.
During the war movie audiences were lured inside
by these poster
advertisements, mesmerized in the darkened temple of their local Bijou, and thrilled with our struggles against the forces of evil in such screen classics as Bataan, The Fighting Sullivans and The Moon in Down, shivered at the dangers lurking behind the scenes in such spy thrillers as The Conspirators and Man Hunt, escaped into laughter with Buck Privates and Miracle of Morgan’s Creek, broke out into song with such musical morale-lifters as This Is the Army and Follow the Boys, and shared the trials on the home front in such heart-tugging dramas as Sunday Dinner for a Soldier and I’ll Be Seeing You. Such movies are
promoted and celebrated in these posters in an artful, graphic and fun way.
The information here is arranged, after the
movie title, as follows:
Production Company, Year of Release. Reel time. Black-and-White or Color. Director. Cast Members. Plot Summary. Genre.
As a part of our treasured heritage, these movies
and their poster art creations
are a learning tool for students offering insight into our not-so-distant cultural and historical past, as well as a demonstration of the illustrator’s skill.
We welcome your interest and hope you enjoy this collection. Please contact us by email or 516/299-2880 if you have any comments or questions.
