DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FILM COLLECTION

The collection consists of files from the liaison office of the Defense Department dealing with the film and television industry, including hundreds of scripts submitted to DOD in hopes of gaining official cooperation (loan of war material, primarily) or acceptance for work contracted out, together with relevant correspondence and internal DOD memoranda concerning action taken on specific requests. While the military-film industry connection is interesting, the eventual primary value of the collection will be in the many hundreds of film and television scripts themselves, which offer a detailed insight into the way Hollywood and the television industry have dealt with military themes and subjects over an extended time period.
