I love film and the 1940s were just rich with historical moments in the film industry. I would love to discuss some of the interesting aspects of the industry.

One mark of the 1940s is all the films about war that were created.

Technicolor was used in some films in the 1940s, though it was too expensive to use casually.

There were an awful lot of propaganda films created during the war and I'm not sure that this was a good thing but, at the same time, a lot of the films gave us a documentary of the way people lived and what they felt. These I like.

I think that a significant number of the films were created to serve as social commentaries. War-time and gangster films were made, depicting the dark, shadowy, and mysterious facets of man and life.

FlorrieMay – I think you are right that the propaganda films created during the war provide us with some insight as to how people lived and how different industries were used to encourage people to support the government and military.
