Area Call for Papers
Hollywood and World War II "A" and "B" Films
During the Second World War, both the Hollywood Studios' A- and B-film producers went to work on creating a huge list of films about the war. Some were musicals, some were comedies, some were "home front" melodramas, spy films dealt with espionage, and, of course, combat films showed our fighting men and women of all armed services doing battle with the Germans, Japanese, and Italians.
Do you have a paper about World War II A-pictures or B-pictures you'd like to share with like-minded scholars? The Film & History League, with the Literature/Film Association, presents a conference on "War in Film, Television, and History" Nov. 11-14, 2004, in Dallas. Full details on the location, registration procedures, and additional area topics can be found
on the web address given below.
Send a proposal consisting of a cover letter and an abstract of your paper, either by mail or e-mail by Sept 15 to:
Ralph Donald (the chair for World War II A-films) or Robert Fyne (the chair for World War II B-films). Contact information is provided below.
