U.S. War Department:
World War II Propaganda Films Triple Feature of Shorts
Starring: Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, Lloyd Bridges
& Robert Preston
This cassette features 3 of the US Government’s most popular & successful propaganda and recruitment films made in cooperation with Hollywood during WWII.
Winning Your Wings - "Young America, your future is in the sky; your wings are waiting!" Lieutenant James Stewart (who eventually attained the rank of brigadier general) tells viewers of this classic USAF recruitment film. Stewart also offers more subtle motivations, as when he tells his prospects:"Consider the effect these shining wings have on the gals: it's phenomenal." This outstanding example of a Hollywood-Government co-production made by the Army Air Force and Warner Brothers became one of the most successful recruiting films of the war.
Thunderbolt - Supervised by Lieutenant Colonel William Wyler. James Stewart introduces and Lloyd Bridges narrates this motion picture on the activities of the 57th Fighter Group during "Operation Strangle", which destroyed vital supply routes deep behind German lines. This operation seriously crippled Nazi fighting ability, hastening the sweep of the Allied forces into Rome. Color cameras mounted at various points on the P-47 fighter-bombers make us participants as the planes swoop and dive, raining bombs and bullets onto targets far below. These sequences are easily some of the most spectacular ever filmed of war from the air.
Wings Up - This Army Air Force officer-candidate
recruiting film, narrated by Clark Gable, shows how intense discipline and
conditioning techniques at the officer-training school in Miami help to
distinguish those who can lead from those who can't. Footage of famous men
at this school includes Mayor Glen Cove of Long Island, Elmer Meadows, Robert
Preston, Gilbert Roland and Gable himself. This informative and entertaining
film was also used by the Army under the title Sustineo Alas.

Vanity 6 Only $15.95
As part of the Prince Stable of the 80’s music scene, Prince grouped his girlfriend, former girlfriend & wardrobe mistress to form The Hookers. That name would later be scrapped in favor of Vanity 6. The group went on to record this one & only album, before personal differences broke the group up. However, on this album, Vanity and her colleagues are insanely fun. Prince's stamp is all over this 1982 release, which finds Vanity, Brenda, and Susan backed by the Time. The raunchy lyrics reflect Prince's obsession with all things sexual, and like Prince, Vanity 6 manages to bridge the gap between funk/R&B and rock/pop/new wave. Even if the sexually exploitive lyrics become predictable after awhile, this LP is quite diverse and unpredictable musically. Prince even guest vocals on ‘If a Woman Answers, Don’t Hang Up’ as the jealous girlfriend. There are 2 Bonus cuts on this disc: The Ultra-Rare ‘Vibrator’ that Warner Bros simply refused to release because of it’s extreme explicitness, and the original demo for ‘Sex Shooter’ originally done by Vanity 6 here, it was later done by Apollonia 6 ( what became of Vanity 6 after Vanity quit to go solo and was replaced by Apollonia Katero ) in the movie Purple Rain.
