For the fifth year in a row Karl Cohen,
world-renowned film scholar, hosts a night of animation he has assembled for
the Film Society. This program explores how short films were used to rally the
American public to war and then, later cool down our bloodlust and get us to
rebuild a world ravaged by war.
These films provide a fascinating look at how Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Daffy and other animated stars persuaded us to recycle, pay our taxes to buy guns, guns and more guns and laugh at Hitler. Warning: Some of these films were designed to inflame our rage and will now be seen as deeply offensive.
