Brazil at War (in the Ephemeral section of Open Video Project. Also, film #242 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

This film was made right after Brazil joined the allies during World War II. It basically describes what a great ally Brazil was expected to be. What this boils down to is a military version of a travelogue. It’s somewhat ironic to watch today, considering Brazil didn’t exactly end up being known for its military victories, and that it did later become known for harboring Nazis. Mostly, though, this is dull.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Ratings: **.
