History’s Perspective

London Can Take It, a British propaganda film, gave Americans a visceral look at the courage of Londoners as their city burned. By the end of November, the movie had played in 12,000 U.S. theatres. Charles Lindbergh – pro- German, Anglophobe and isolationist – opined from his Long Island estate, that such heroics were no reason to support the British cause, let alone join it. Joe Kennedy was that very month advising Hollywood producers not to make any such films, as they might annoy Hitler.”
