Area Call for Papers
Hollywood and World War II ³A² and ³B² Films

During the Second World War, both the Hollywood Studios¹ A- and B-film
producers went to work on creating a huge list of films about the war.  Some
were musicals, some were comedies, some were ³home front² melodramas, spy
films dealt with espionage, and, of course, combat films showed our fighting
men and women of all armed services doing battle with the Germans, Japanese
and Italians.

Do you have a paper about World War II A-pictures or B-pictures you¹d like
to share with like-minded scholars?  The Film & History League, with the
Literature/Film Association, presents a conference on "War in Film,
Television, and History" Nov. 11-14, 2004, in Dallas.   Full details on the
location, registration procedures, and additional area topics can be found
on the web site
