America the Beautiful. If you're looking for a good old-fashioned gung-ho American propaganda film, look no further. This 1940s film goes way over the top in telling us that America is the best nation on earth, bar none. This, of course, begs to be msted, but it almost makes it too easy. The film borders on self-parody, but at least it’s lively. We’re just the best nation that ever existed, OK??? Here's some stock footage to prove it. Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Propaganda Quotient: *****+. Overall Rating: ***.
