The Negro Soldier
American army orientation film of 1944 designed to reduce racial prejudice and to exhort the negro to do his bit in the continuing war effort, very much in the WHY WE FIGHT format. Note: the film presents an unbelievably rosy vision of the negro in American life and history, completely ignoring the real issues of racial hostility. The film is so laudatory of the negro that it fails to ring true as anything other than a temporary panegyric to ensure the wholehearted support of the black population during the war crises. Capra was proud of it for treating the negro with respect.
