Many American films screened during the WWII period were designed to provide escape from the harsh realities of wartime. Lavish musicals were popular, as were romantic comedies. Going to the movies was a way to forget, for a little while, that soldiers were in harm's way, and that perhaps one's ration cards had run out too soon.

Towards the end of the war and in the years immediately following, the conflict itself become the focus of many films. The courage of soldiers and sailors under fire or experiencing harsh conditions in POW camps was celebrated, and the war hero was idealized.
