Vintage Propaganda at Ancestry.com

I've just noticed that Ancestry.com has a new collection of WWII 'United News'™ Newsreels, 1942-1946. The 267 newsreels—averaging about 10 minutes in length—were produced by the U.S. Office of War Information, and include shots of Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima, MacArthur returning to the Philippines, and Colonel Klink unwittingly letting a prisoner escape in the trunk of his car.

OK, not the last one.
