Walt Disney Treasures - On the Front Lines

WALT DISNEY TREASURES - ON THE FRONT LINES

When I was given the opportunity to get a copy of this set of ratites I was what one could say excited. A great guy and friend I met here on Amazon hooked me up with this wonderful piece of not only Disney history but war history. Mr. KIA you Sir are a scholar and a gentleman indeed, thanks for the great set. Now as most of you know Disney has released these "Treasures" sets and many other sets just like it over the years most are out of print now but you can still find some of them.

This is an excellent 2 disc set that features all kinds of classic shorts and films to help out with the war at the time. Everything to propaganda to training videos to well everything is here, including some of the best Donald Duck cartoons you will ever see. The first disc has about 29 shorts if I remember correctly including some Donald ones I had not seen in years, including his draft in and of course the Nazi dream one. But still one of my all time favorites is the one in which he finds invisible paint and paints cannon; ah Sergeant Pete is not too thrilled. Of course many other characters from Disney are here but one of the other really good ones is the great Pluto one were he is trying to steal a goats food, I love it.

Disc 2 features a few more shorts but the real interesting thing here is the film "Victory Through Air Power", how they had it right. The film isn't to long and is a nice piece of history. Also included on disc 2 are some great special features like some interviews stills, trailer, and of course a behind the scenes feature. This is absolutely one of the best sets I own, I am actually having a hard time finding words to type. KIA thanks once again my friend; I appreciate the hook up you gave me here.

A great collection from Disney that collects all the World War 2 cartoons, shorts, and films that they produced during that time period. Excellent set.

About this movie

Wiki

World War II transformed the Disney Studio. Although nearly one-third of the artists had been drafted, production quintupled, up to 95% of it for military and government uses. Some of the films included inOn the Front Lineshave not been seen since their initial release; others were never shown to the general public. Anticipating the importance of animated training films, Disney produced the studio's first educational film, "Four Methods of Flush Riveting" (1941), using limited animation to train riveters at Lockheed. Decades later, "Four Methods" and the excerpts from military training films remain models of how to present information clearly and concisely.

Many of the wartime entertainment shorts are largely propaganda. Donald's nightmare of working on a Nazi assembly line in "Der Fuehrer's Face" is still hilarious slapstick. The grimmer "Education for Death" and "Chicken Little" have aged less gracefully. Disney's oddest wartime project was Victory Through Air Power (1943), a live action/animation feature based on Major Alex de Seversky's controversial book that called for the adoption of long-range bombers. By the time it was finished, air power was a reality.

Front Lines also includes several health films made for the Office of Inter-American Affairs, and bond-buying shorts for Canada that reuse animation from Snow White and "Three Little Pigs." This collection of genuine rarities is a ...
